"Of the office, right? So maybe more than people think these both of these types of Technologies are already available and kind of permeating the society that we that we live in I think I'm connected to this one of the main things that we thought before recording to to discuss our kind of the ethical and public issues regarding both of these Technologies specific wage. Or consumers and I think the the report that came up from The Retina Institute really drove into this maybe if I could get both of you to discuss some of the kind of the key ethical and public issues of these kind of emerging Technologies before with before we do that. It's very important also to distinguish VR and AR in that regard because there is of course a difference between f e r n a r and that's what I would say. Is that for a fee are likely we had a lot. Of course a lot of before we are existed. You have the gaming and you play a game on your PC or you go into the digital world and that way and with VR you are re-emerged into a virtual reality and in comparison AR is then more of an odd digital layer that is put over our own physical environment. So digital aspects come into our world in that regard and I think that's a really interesting distinction too long. Because that really defines both of these aspects and have have different impact on society as well. Yeah, I think we really see this the umbrella term we use as immersive technology and we see this immersive technology as a Next Step In The Information Society. There's a bit of a bit of a big claim but it just explain what we mean..

"Service and collections there on the phones a lot or in front of patients. So they don't always have the opportunity to look at all of our documents and training materials that come out each month as well as the top things that have been identified as learning opportunities. So we've created an monthly newsletter that ties off of that stuff together and a single document and we just started that in July or financial counselors. And then we bought a good customer service and collections in September. So we've got a lot of feedback from now that that's very helpful and to have a single document that has all that information with great Insight Stacy. My last question for both of you is all revenue cycle teams. Do you look at the performance of a specific metrics to ensure your team is on track? Patrick's do you look at most closely? So in particular we're we're on Epic as our electronic health record for our single billing office. So and we do have two hospitals and then a very large Physician Group home. So the first thing that for me that I look at on Monday morning when I come in and I think it's kind of a race for several of us is we look at our financial pulse which Compares us to other facilities that we can get our our size as well as we can compare to everybody and epic. So obviously the biggest thing we look at is g r a r base one of the other things that I think we've really been focused and Stacy's area is focused on is our clean claim rate. We definitely focus on our insurance aging as well as self-pay aging. Productivity for each area and then also all of that rolls up to our vice president. So how many of our staff are meeting productivity how many of our staff meeting quality scores on a monthly basis and it really kind of depends on what area in particular so each of our areas. There's probably different KP eyes and metrics that we may particularly. Look at we all know how we impact the AR but coding for instance so h i m really probably focuses on their coding days and prepay on Mondays. We're more and PFS were focused on the insurance aging and how we can get that down as well as overall aging home. They see I don't what what more would you add? I was just going to add our vice president at the beginning of covid-19 created a spreadsheet with all different daily KP eyes on home. So that we could monitor what the impact was and not something that we've kept up..

"We have been doing a big study on the responsible and wedding of new technologies in our society because the Senate us this so that God came to the senate in the Netherlands was looking out do this though his urges with this large study called urgent upgrade and we assess eight merging Technologies also AR & VR off and what we found at the end of the study is that there's so much public debate about the other Technologies going on about artificial intelligence about robotics about implant of things devices, but not too much about vrna are so that really made us study this technology more closely and causes really focused on it. And I think last couple of years have been so many years. Jasmine's going on to this sector of that. It's really been booming at the same time. We've been seeing quite a lot of research being done on this and also on the ethical size, but somehow this whole research domain hasn't killed over into the public debate and is the political debate. So we as an Institute thought this is where we should I mean to the discussion and surf, how about yourself for a r? Yeah. I think they had in fact been doing it for a rat's now it's it's very good one because that's similar for me. Um, so I'm also a researcher at The Retina Institute and there I'm working on two projects. And the first one was a m a r and the other one is voice technology. So we're talking about Alexa and Siri and Google and that kind of stuff. So but in a similar way, I'm I'm working with the rod, with that similar goal and that similar situation, uh, but then working on a are but I think in regards to my my own interest outside of rats know where it started off was, I think uh in Amsterdam that there was some sort of birth Um event and there I started to using a VR game for the first time. It was called super hot I think and there you had to what's kind of a shooter game and I saw people playing that and they're then they were talking on the ground and they were sometimes jumping even like what's going on here. So after trying that and really immersing myself in the DVR stuff that was that was really interesting and yeah really immersive cool experience. So I thought that was super new and later on with with a our interests. I think like foreign a lot of futurists or people that are busy with with new technologies. I got interested by the series of Black Mirror that was really interesting for a societal aspects because they had some AR in interest in there as well.

"I finally pressed play on God of Which W ar. one, 3? this one the last one that oh the newest one. Yeah. I bought it on sale and just never played it. But everybody was telling me it was amazing, but at the time I just didn't have the time. So I was like, you know I don't have anything to do right now finally jumped in and started playing it. I like took 2 hours and okay, but yeah, I like it so far. I mean it's God of W ar in my opinion is not any different from the other three, so far so far, obviously the improved graphics and you know. I heard you can't jump i n this one though. From what I can tell it doesn't seem like it it's more often like I don't know. It's more like action adventure style. But yeah now that you mentioned it. I don't think they don't think you can jump. Can you? So it's like everything is like push button actions like you walk up to a ledge and like press square or whatever or like you walk up to a rope and like press Circle. But yeah, there is now that you say that yeah, I don't remember any jumping I heard heard the combat, now I've never played God of War so but I've heard that combat was very different especially with the lack of jumping and it's not I don't want to say it's qte action, but it's kind of similar? It has a bit of that like the, the block and parry system. That's kind of, you know, counter-attack system is kind kind of QTE but for the most part is I mean all the God of Wars button are basic mashers. But this one is a little less less button mashery , but it's still there. From what I've seen. It's strategic button Mashery. Y eah, it's a little more strategic. It's more like, you know, you got your power hit, power attacks, your regular quick attacks. And then you got got your pa rry and counter-attack. But yeah, it's I really don't see what the hype was all I'm about. gonna get a lot of heat. It's after 3 change, games people and are gonna hate because it's different. Yeah, but I really see like everybody everyone when it first came out everybody was like , you gotta get you gotta get you God gotta of War get God of War and I'm like, okay, I'll get it eventually, but you know, it's it's amazing it's the best game ever like, you know, that was kind of like the commentary and. Of course. Yeah. I don't really see like I'm kinda glad I didn't rush to get it. pay Or full price for it. Right? Exactly cuz I'm like umm it's not all that different from the other ones graphic wise yeah I guess the story is more fleshed out so far but you know, the Cinematic sequences and all that stuff. But I mean, that's what happens. when you go from you know, what was that PS2 to PS3? I mean PS3 to PS4. You should expect that. Yeah, everything will be improved If it's . not then it's crappy game to begin with. So yeah, I know probably get a lot of hate but I don't care because well, it's like a two-year-old game. Anyway. Yeah, like it's they gave you offer people. Yeah. Come on, let's let's be real with this.

But rather to be a downer when I dressed wine, this one is called the Trader Joe's Platinum Reserve Cabernet, Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley 2018 lot 97 There have been a couple of bumper crops in Napa Valley Sonoma that area so there was Surplus and then the covid-19 off but these are wines and so to restaurants and for parties and none of that's going on right now. So there was a trip plus and there was going to be a great many wines that were going to be a prices. They usually never AR CNET and Trader Joe's was starting to show this was a velour the Palm Spring Mountain at Atlas Peak and there might be another one all Napa some Indian from a high-end subdivision small places. I think the Oak Grove that's where Screaming Eagle is front Screaming Eagles when it was 100 Point perfect lines themselves in the thousands of dollars and I figured out I'm going to have a 1490. I have one that off. Ghost videos of Vineyard within two miles of that place or or something like that. I don't know where the vineyard is. They don't tell you that when you're paying $49 for high-end. Well, I'll tell you about you all the details, you know with Cooperage what force the old came from who's arrived start with winemaker the history of the winery all and for the price of these things and when you don't offer you get cheaper, so I don't know if there's still going to be a a glut is just the last gasps Trader Joe's were you want to run out and find these small production wines? I think there was a little bit less than five thousand cases. There's twelve thousand twelve bottles off the case for each of these but which you know is a lot of wine, especially when it's a nationwide distribution. So, you know on a Thursday Supposed to go to continue there's resorting lions and in the works that are coming our way out of cheap price, but you know a lot of that, you know a big deal any more with the fires are happening there and you'll see the devastation and I know you know people lost their lives people of lost history things. They worked on forever. You know, I just saw a man who had 100,000 bottles in one of his buildings in the building burned burned out. It's just, you know, it's crazy drink to him. I'm going to do that. So I don't know if this is gonna be the last of the cheap wines from Napa Valley. They're coming up or what? But they're good the 1499. There's over those got a nose that is worth you just smelling it all the different Roma's going on in there is worth forty nine thousand. I mean you don't get that and just regular then there is a reason why these Appalachians are famous and this is a 2018. It's not a young age worthy. Why that's drink it now. Maybe you could put it away for a couple of years if you want to you know, but it doesn't need to you can drink it right now, but it tastes great. It's got a lot of flavor. It's got its Sleek doesn't have a lot of Weights medium weight on the palate. It's liquid has a ton of flavor. It's you know, it's just kind of flows money's nice deal II 1499. It kicks butt Trader Joe's says that it's if it were a retail branded. Did you have an air brand on it? What's so for about $30 and $30 Napa cabs are starting to really ride, you know that when it starts getting more expensive a lot of that is because of its more often. It's it's rarer line mean, there's not enough to go around you gotta pay to get them but you really hitting some really good wines when you get dirty on the upper end or you can go higher the 13 get you some good one.

How do you sell 5G in the middle of a pandemic?

"The last five months, the crow virus has shut down. The economy is kept many of us, stuck at home. Adding the fact that millions of people outta jobs disposable income is what it used to be. Years from Verizon's perspective. How do you sell five G. Environment? This is a technology that spoke promises to give you a high speed connection on the go. All of us aren't on the go anymore Where is the benefit of five g? You know it's it's it's an interesting. Question because you know we'd plan plan planned, and then all of a sudden nobody saw this come in and it's different but so there's some downsides to it but then there's also some upsides to it as well. I we have not seen. The demand for a fixed wireless access product like we are right now and you know we've we've been limited in what we can do from a forty perspective. With respect to fixed wireless access just because Waco talking about before Kinda bandwidth limitations. You know now is we put more band without they report millimeter wave out there that'll open up some some potential for more fixed wireless access tied. Products that we can offer to people you know, and that's GonNa come in Handy for for people you know especially in the covid environment if they're working from home, they can't go to get a good broadband connection. You can use wireless for you know underserved underprivileged folks we can use my fi and people can get on the on on websites or do their schoolwork. So we think there's a good opportunity They are some of the sales folks told me if I if I had blanket coverage millimeter wave everywhere they really be crushing it with fixed pilots access. Fisher be able to get gigabits of service on on a on a laptop wirelessly. Would you typically do at home with a normal Internet connection? So so we see we see opportunity there on the other side of it. You know we've put in some. You know in stadiums, we put some five G. millimeter wave deployments around the country We really showed it off at super bowl the capabilities there. But largely the those stadiums they're empty right now. So but we do believe that the people come back there and we're working. We're still working on the use cases in things that can really augment. People's experiences when they do return to stadiums. while. That's a good point I mean there are you have the pieces in place to make this work when society goes back normal? Problem is we don't really know when that will actually happen. And know curious to see what is what demand looks like right now, four five devices I know the element, some folks WanNA feature proof themselves won't be ready five G. What it's. Broadly available go out again but there's also the other element that folks are watching what they're spending a lot more right now there's a lot of uncertainty out there and so what are you seeing in terms of customer demand? You know I think there's maybe a better question at Ronin are are the CEO who runs our or consumer division can answer. But I I know for sure he's he sees good demand for five G.. Devices. I believe there's a staff that we've. We've sold the the most five G. Devices and I do think it's it's people probably early adopters people want to see the first. The first of its kind and. The promise we have to those folks as we continue to grow the network new capabilities will come on and as they do you'll be you'll start avail yourself of those no Serbs this and we're working closely with the application developer ecosystem so that they're developing things that will be able to leverage the what we call the currencies, really the capabilities if you will of what five G. Networks will bank. So we continue on we don't believe cove this last forever. And you know. But there's also other opportunities that we see that could five G. can help move. For example factories you know if you get more automation factories, you get a good millimeter way five G. system in. That is much more robust than safe current system. You may be able to do things more efficiently in in a factory. So those are those are things will work with customs on right now, that's a good segue because I know five G. isn't just about higher speech your phone, there is a lot more to five G.. I'm curious what you think the applications are five that specifically would help alleviate some of the issues we're having right now other telemedicine whether it's remote worker. What are some of the opportunities I know you talked about home broadband as one option but where some of the other opportunities out there? Yeah. I mean there's some the opportu while it's funny. So we you know we both ever landline network in wireless network and Bailey we're talking about wireless ear but on the landline side net to some extent on the wireless side, we've been monitoring every day I look at how what normal was before our networks are being. Utilized in wear geographically spread and looking at applications and so so what's happening gaming is huge game the growth of gaming like skyrocketed. It's actually come down a little bit because I think people figured out how to work from home. Initially, it was probably a little bit of a honeymoon period therapy were probably play more games we seem to come down, but it's still way high video applications now, everybody. Now, if you go back before pandemic, sure I knew how to use a Webex and maybe one other now I know like five different video things and video is going to be I think very important. In the future of five G. Because you're going to bring in things like Ar Vr. And Computer Vision Technology and you know. L. Type scenario so you can use computer vision to do different things. All of these kind of things require really. Snappy fast interfaces and really low latency. Scenarios all of which what five jails are wide brand band can bring people. Specific example you talked about telehealth I think that's we think there's going to be that's going to grow a lot I think just by virtue of people don't WanNa go to a doctor. people volve figure out ways to do things at home working right now with a firm that is using five G. along with our MAC. That we just announced they ws so they're able to really do edge computing and some. Run machine learning models out at the EDGE TO GET REAL TIME results. An an operating room. So with polyps and stuff, it makes it much easier for for these folks to operate 'cause right now, what they do is they have large server farms running these models in their hospitals that's costly. They break maintaining him as tough. If you could take all of that away, you can run these things in the cloud more effectively. That's good for everybody so good for the patients go to the hospital and. Moves things along. So it's it's really things like that. Like you said, if we just make this a snappier phone, that's that's really not what we're going for. We're going for one or new inputs, interfaces new experiences had you make things more efficient and it goes across the whole board of the economy we feel. So I'm really excited to see how this evolves and what. People will use these currencies, capabilities, new and stuff, and I can't wait to.

"Patriots Paul Spartan here from the Midnight Patriots. So, one of the. Feel about anchored now. When we started this insanity we always tell people. The reason we do this is because insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny. We would have these conversations between ourselves the group chats. Throws and things like that. We thought, hey man, you know we should just record a podcast but the more we looked the more expensive became. We Cross anger. Anger gives you all the tools you need to do this to make your voice heard and get your voice out there. You have an opinion you gotta use anchor everything from recording to editing to distribution that you'd be all the tools that you need. To allow you to record your podcast right for your phone or your computer. Anchor covers distribution by getting on. Apple. spotify and many many others I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple and effective. So get yourself anchor make voice her. All Right Patriots welcome again to another episode of the Midnight Patriots. Here from the Mile High Command Center the paper to PRICELESS DOT COM studios. Of today, we're going to be discussing the defunding police movement an idea that has picked up steam recently has become a rallying cry for far left protesters, rioters and seemingly anarchist groups. And we wanted to put some thoughts out there about this It seems to me that. We have a problem that requires more of a solution than just defunding. Systemic racism in my opinion is Beth. now, some people would with that. That said. If the narrative that we're going to be that is being shoved down our throats is to be believe that people of Color of. All Ages? Seated shining see in this country are being quote hunted by racist armed hate-mongers. Now that said if if that is in fact, the case. Why would you wanNA define the one organization that has the legal authority in the equipment. To protect you. That seems like a pretty fall said, it seems like a false dichotomy false comparison a false premise to start conversation PHOENIX. What are your thoughts? You know I'm GonNa take this a step further. The phone, the police movement. That is going to move a certain direction and stop. Once, they have figured out that. The one entity. That has sworn upon their own life to defend. There's like. Is Actually doing the job. We. Look at Minneapolis looks. legit. Atlanta's for the three top of my head. All of them have the same premise of less defunding. On the police, define the police. It went a step further into. Let's abolish the police install a private. Very. Force. That has absolutely no training. As No understanding of each individual law that a grand jury a whatever. If. Going to try and paying on. A criminal, a offender, a day walker anybody. Whatever you WANNA call it. So. My name might taking this step further into the question is what exactly we're trying to de-fund. I. Do numerous other people and no. One can give me an answer. It's always just defined defunding. Okay. So Great. Now we have a narratives being Ramdan, our throat. When all in all actuality is, hey, let's just bringing this back to the wild west little set like men up. Yeah I mean that's exactly the way I. See it is if you're going to defend the police and define them then yeah. What we're GONNA have is is you know the your your proverbial gun show earth sugar your gunfight at high noon in the middle of the street. That said cryptic. What are your thoughts on the matter? While I mean if you go I, find that going to be very odd if they try and go wild west because you know the same group behind the protests in the defunding, the police are the same ones who want to raise taxes and have all these limitations on ammo and guns and everything else that. You're going to be able to do that. We're going to have to throw stones at each other. Because, they're going to keep trying to get rid of. Guns and AMMO. I mean. It's maximilian face with white gloves and We'll go back to sword fight fifth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because you know guns don't have near the range of a sword. A you know. That's an excellent point. I mean, they're they're trying to you know the presumptive destroyed comedy Slimy Joe. Biden. Has Basically announced that east common for the guns and they're going to basically raise taxes on firearms and ammunition to where they are completely unaffordable to anyone that's not in the billionaire boys You know that'd be that being said. How and how the me get to this point I mean you're you're talking about defunct not not obviously not us we think it's a crazy. Lunatics idea. What do they want to replace it with? I mean, let's let's be honest mental Minnesota in Minneapolis the same city council that saw fit to abolish the police department Arben has hired mercenaries for the private security force. Now. I see a far more disturbing outcome here boys, and that is that you know we have people acting with the fourth and backing of the law. And have no oath to uphold the constitution they're loyal only to money. That's a win win. If you're a leftist Marxist wants to light the constitution on fire because you have thugs running around at the under the color and force of law with automatic weapons. Now, if people think that trump is ending in in the army, what do you think's going to happen when we have quote unquote law enforcement that has no that are basically political puppets. Call that. KGB Custodio or exactly. Exactly. You'RE GONNA turn from. You know right now everybody's all up in. Arms with you know Military. Being, sent to Seattle and stuff like that like military forces or. Whatever that whatever they are that they're complaining about having martial law budget they wanNA with the funding this which are gonNA run into is you're actually GONNA run into mercenaries Latsis. You know either they're working for the buck or they think they're doing good by be judge jury and executioner for anybody they come across you know doing something they don't like because nobody can have their own opinion like and be civil about it. It's either you agree with me or you're wrong. that. You'RE GONNA run into all these fights and all these these vigilantes more or less that are going to sit there, and they're going to have guns and they're going to. Attack and kill innocent people just because they don't agree with what they think. About. Exactly. And like I said, that's a win win for Marxist politicians who have somehow seized power and now want want to run rampant over the constitutional whether we like it or not. I don't agree with with the with the with a lot of the things that bid the organization black lives matter stands for the organization to me is a self admitted Marxist. Violence approving organization now. I can't get kind the organization I. Don't think that any of US disagree the that black lives do matter just like every other. Form of life matters and regardless there everyone in this country is is is entitled to due process. I agree there's you know that there is race racism racism exists we we've seen. Plenty of it and I completely agree that that needs to go away. Of course, I'll ever. I do not believe that there is systematic I mean everybody. One way or another has the opportunity. And responsibility to themselves to. Get, the life that they want. Why agree that's? That's what that's what pursuit of happiness is all about. It's not the pursuit of joy quote unquote it was meant to the in that context as it context as written in the declaration of independence in the Constitution as pursuing your own circumstances. Working working to be what you want to be. I mean honestly I, you want to so defend the polices. The wrong way to go now do I think you know there are almost every state I can think of Over uses their budget. Or uses it incorrectly and find themselves up Shit Creek and some point now inside the funding the police. What should happen is that the police have you know? Better, I mean, honestly better training. Right I. Mean sometimes, you have the the. The police the Police Academy or whatever, and then you're thrown right out. You know on the beat with a superior or something like that, and obviously you being a fresh gumshoe sitting there dealing with somebody who's been on the force for a while you're learning from them. So you know if you get a bad cop as a superior, they're gonNA freak out because they don't know. To stop them, they don't know what to do. Because they're too worried about their job because there isn't training for that kind of thing. So I, I think that they need to revamp the training and they need to make every All officers that. that are serving should have to do. Something like a fresh training course or A. An up-to-date with all the changes that happen because we know societies like a computer, it's something it's out of date and six months. Air Every you know every year, every two years they have to get recertified training or something to that extent that just helps them. Update helps them mitigate the issues that they come across in a better way. You know take that. Then some of these God awful construction plans that they don't need to do like take Colorado's redoing stapleton. Oh God right spent millions of dollars. They're now you take that you invest in getting in creating another sub department doesn't the police but you get a another department that deals with you know Domestic domestic disturbances and. Family matters they can be counselors therapists whatever now they should have cops with them. You know in it is something that requires a police officer or Some sort of. Of Force or. Something that the police are trained for but I think some of these things like the people that do actually have mental health problems that. They you know they they don't have self-awareness were there at all they become crazy or something some of them would be able to. Diffuse the situation before a cop has to. Think that they're. Defending their life from somebody who's just acting rational because they just mentally aren't there. Well, that's the that's the real question is it is is that how how do we Do we define those situations because I'm going to get into a few things here after the after the break your boys and we will will continue on and I'm probably GonNa Piss a lot of the cops that I know off by some things going to get GonNa say so patriots stick with this year will be right back. Patriots is Paul sparking with a shameless plug for our New Year store. That's right. Midnight Patriots now offers t shirts, coffee mugs just about every other purchase where on your body the check it out go to shop midnight gatriways dot. com is way to both embrace your insomnia display your patriotism, and tell your governor to go himselves. So that Shop Dot Patriots Dot Com fifteen percent off right now for a limited time now back to the show. Okay. So as I mentioned in the previous segment, probably going to piss off a lot of cops that I know and I can't believe I'm actually going to say part of what I'm going to say. here in the Mile High Command. Center. We. Are. Unfortunately in the current being subjects of governor, jared police. Now I want to state unequivocally I. Have Zero problem that he is day openly that doesn't bother me a bit I don't care that he watches a different kind of porn than I do I don't care who he sleeps with. The guy's a timer. I gotta say I will criticize words do and I will give credit words do. Now, I'm not going to go over the whole article, but there was an article that recently appeared to the dead post about the some of the things that we were just talking about as a pretend to what I feel like our common sense police reforms. Now. I'm not GonNa Not GonNa read the article which but everybody can go look it up, Denver Post. dotcom can't believe I'm giving them pleader but. that. said. Cookie issues really stood up three sorry, three key issues really stood out for me in this legislation. Firstly that they're going to demilitarize a patrol police which I can't help but agree with okay If Your average ordinary citizen is not to not able to carry an AK47 or a ar fifteen around without being assaulted without being questioned by police than the police shouldn't have meter I don't have a problem with that and they said that the details are in the. Second. Is that. They have in fact. reinstituted or excuse me reduced. All immunity. Now, a lot of people may not know what qualified immunity is basically what allows cops to do what they do without any sort of fear of repercussion. So what? The Colorado Legislature has done is institute civilized ability for individual officers that are not accused but but found to be I don't WanNa say guilty but found responsible for the violation of an individual's civil civil liberties. And that liability is up to twenty five, thousand dollars per incident. Number three police are now held to the same standard that has gone on in corporate America in the private sector for. Decades You know we've all been through those work in the corporate world have all been through sexual harassment or bottomline harassment training okay. it's no stranger. It's that class that you have to. You have to guzzle coffee in and remain silent while world hold what sexual predators we are for. You know where we place our gaze to you know every other male male behavior that said as part of that training. What we're an abuse to is the idea of collusion what collusion means is that if you witnessed harassment or bullying or something that blatantly violates company policy or law. That if you don't come forward, report it and it's found out that you know about the new face, the same disciplinary measures as the offender. That includes that because liability Does your jobs. ETC etc.. and. This law requires that good cops deal with bad cops and report the. I don't see any of those three articles as a bad idea. Okay. Now, obviously being accused of something he's not the same as being guilty of it but. The at the very least, there is some sort of relief release mechanism or shooting relief mechanism there. To help solve the problem, a lot of people don't realize that the qualified immunity is not even really a statute. is a precedent put forward as. A. Means of fighting the drug war. which I won't get into that but that's complete total violation of the fourth minute. anyways. But it's part of a reduction of of constitutional liberties. that includes things like civil liability are shooting civil forfeiture asset forfeiture so Dumb any comments on that I mean I feel like those are good ways to actually start solving the problem as opposed to to complete quote defunding. are there issues with it certainly, but I think the mechanisms are in place to make it make closeable your thoughts. will allow me if I may. I'm going to step back, yours. You know maybe we can have social worker. With. Police escort as such. They, have. Like that in place in every department. The key of it is. There so understaffed that they cannot take on the type of workload that. A METRO AREA DENVER A. Atlanta Baltimore Mineapolis. They don't have the resources for that and. If I may be so fold. We have politicians in place in offers that hey, you can get by on a two hundred, fifty thousand dollars budget for the year for that program alone. It doesn't work like that well, then and to your point directly wouldn't that justify an increase in the overall police budget to put people like that in place as opposed to defunding will again you've gotta remember you're dealing with politicians that they can get it in their pocket. It's all just a day for them. Absolutely I agree with that cryptic your thoughts. Well, yeah and I mean that's kind of where I was going is that you know not defunding the police but. They need to instead of defunding them they need to add funds to them because to make those kinds of programs or to hire more people that they can. Do that they pay them. I mean. You know I know cops were scared life every day dealing with any of those situations I mean. In a sense, you need to pay the the therapist or the counseling or whoever those people are you need to pay them. A. In, a in a matter of speaking pay wage worth their life. Oh, absolutely I mean everybody got to eat. We all agree with that concept but job comes with certain wrists that they shouldn't be naive to. When walking into the situation I mean agree or disagree.

Air Every you know every year, every two years they have to get recertified training or something to that extent that just helps them. Update helps them mitigate the issues that they come across in a better way. You know take that. Then some of these God awful construction plans that they don't need to do like take Colorado's redoing stapleton. Oh God right spent millions of dollars. They're now you take that you invest in getting in creating another sub department doesn't the police but you get a another department that deals with you know Domestic domestic disturbances and. Family matters they can be counselors therapists whatever now they should have cops with them. You know in it is something that requires a police officer or Some sort of. Of Force or. Something that the police are trained for but I think some of these things like the people that do actually have mental health problems that. They you know they they don't have self-awareness were there at all they become crazy or something some of them would be able to. Diffuse the situation before a cop has to. Think that they're. Defending their life from somebody who's just acting rational because they just mentally aren't there. Well, that's the that's the real question is it is is that how how do we Do we define those situations because I'm going to get into a few things here after the after the break your boys and we will will continue on and I'm probably GonNa Piss a lot of the cops that I know off by some things going to get GonNa say so patriots stick with this year will be right back. Patriots is Paul sparking with a shameless plug for our New Year store. That's right. Midnight Patriots now offers t shirts, coffee mugs just about every other purchase where on your body the check it out go to shop midnight gatriways dot. com is way to both embrace your insomnia display your patriotism, and tell your governor to go himselves. So that Shop Dot Patriots Dot Com fifteen percent off right now for a limited time now back to the show. Okay. So as I mentioned in the previous segment, probably going to piss off a lot of cops that I know and I can't believe I'm actually going to say part of what I'm going to say. here in the Mile High Command. Center. We. Are. Unfortunately in the current being subjects of governor, jared police. Now I want to state unequivocally I. Have Zero problem that he is day openly that doesn't bother me a bit I don't care that he watches a different kind of porn than I do I don't care who he sleeps with. The guy's a timer. I gotta say I will criticize words do and I will give credit words do. Now, I'm not going to go over the whole article, but there was an article that recently appeared to the dead post about the some of the things that we were just talking about as a pretend to what I feel like our common sense police reforms. Now. I'm not GonNa Not GonNa read the article which but everybody can go look it up, Denver Post. dotcom can't believe I'm giving them pleader but. that. said. Cookie issues really stood up three sorry, three key issues really stood out for me in this legislation. Firstly that they're going to demilitarize a patrol police which I can't help but agree with okay If Your average ordinary citizen is not to not able to carry an AK47 or a ar fifteen around without being assaulted without being questioned by police than the police shouldn't have meter I don't have a problem with that and they said that the details are in the. Second. Is that. They have in fact. reinstituted or excuse me reduced. All immunity. Now, a lot of people may not know what qualified immunity is basically what allows cops to do what they do without any sort of fear of repercussion. So what? The Colorado Legislature has done is institute civilized ability for individual officers that are not accused but but found to be I don't WanNa say guilty but found responsible for the violation of an individual's civil civil liberties. And that liability is up to twenty five, thousand dollars per incident. Number three police are now held to the same standard that has gone on in corporate America in the private sector for. Decades You know we've all been through those work in the corporate world have all been through sexual harassment or bottomline harassment training okay. it's no stranger. It's that class that you have to. You have to guzzle coffee in and remain silent while world hold what sexual predators we are for. You know where we place our gaze to you know every other male male behavior that said as part of that training. What we're an abuse to is the idea of collusion what collusion means is that if you witnessed harassment or bullying or something that blatantly violates company policy or law. That if you don't come forward, report it and it's found out that you know about the new face, the same disciplinary measures as the offender. That includes that because liability Does your jobs. ETC etc.. and. This law requires that good cops deal with bad cops and report the. I don't see any of those three articles as a bad idea. Okay. Now, obviously being accused of something he's not the same as being guilty of it but. The at the very least, there is some sort of relief release mechanism or shooting relief mechanism there. To help solve the problem, a lot of people don't realize that the qualified immunity is not even really a statute. is a precedent put forward as. A. Means of fighting the drug war. which I won't get into that but that's complete total violation of the fourth minute. anyways. But it's part of a reduction of of constitutional liberties. that includes things like civil liability are shooting civil forfeiture asset forfeiture so Dumb any comments on that I mean I feel like those are good ways to actually start solving the problem as opposed to to complete quote defunding. are there issues with it certainly, but I think the mechanisms are in place to make it make closeable your thoughts. will allow me if I may. I'm going to step back, yours. You know maybe we can have social worker. With. Police escort as such. They, have. Like that in place in every department. The key of it is. There so understaffed that they cannot take on the type of workload that. A METRO AREA DENVER A. Atlanta Baltimore Mineapolis. They don't have the resources for that and. If I may be so fold. We have politicians in place in offers that hey, you can get by on a two hundred, fifty thousand dollars budget for the year for that program alone. It doesn't work like that well, then and to your point directly wouldn't that justify an increase in the overall police budget to put people like that in place as opposed to defunding will again you've gotta remember you're dealing with politicians that they can get it in their pocket. It's all just a day for them. Absolutely I agree with that cryptic your thoughts. Well, yeah and I mean that's kind of where I was going is that you know not defunding the police but. They need to instead of defunding them they need to add funds to them because to make those kinds of programs or to hire more people that they can. Do that they pay them. I mean. You know I know cops were scared life every day dealing with any of those situations I mean. In a sense, you need to pay the the therapist or the counseling or whoever those people are you need to pay them. A. In, a in a matter of speaking pay wage worth their life. Oh, absolutely I mean everybody got to eat. We all agree with that concept but job comes with certain wrists that they shouldn't be naive to. When walking into the situation I mean agree or disagree.

"We choose to go to the moon and this decayed and do the other thing. Not because they are easy but because they are off here we are. The world is a mess and yet things are moving forward. What are you excited about these days before we jump into jump into the background? Well I'm so excited these last couple of weeks. I mean I'm a techie. We've been working remote forever in a lot of ways but certainly not at this level at the scale and to CBS people be able to connect in technologies. Like zoom and skype. Everyone's using them now. Nonstop. It's not without its challenges. But it's kind of amazing heart least in our world attack and media. We've been able to kind of adjust very quickly and make the best of it and learn how to cope with a whole new set of problems. Of course like how many zoom and skype calls can you do in a single day It's turns out into fewer than you would think. Seems easy but when you do a day after day amazing so. I'm kind of excited by how you can collaborate over video and have it be so effective of these days. How many technologies including things will probably get into today about virtual reality can assist with remote collaboration? Of course it's all under not fun circumstances right now but with with any luck we'll do our best to get through the situation and some of the things we had to write about how to cope will become things we learn how to do in our daily lives and integrate a little more and be able to connect even better worldwide. So I look at that as a bit of a silver lining around. What's happening at the moment air? Pollution's going down and if we can cut back on flights in travel a bit then there's a lot. There's a lot of big positives but I want to ask you a hard question. I want you to answer it honestly two years ago if I'd asked you. Are we going to be having this conversation today in Vr? What would you have answered no now whilst that to be able to collaborate in VR effectively to do ongoing day-to-day communication in a reliable way? Is Still Challenging. I've been working in this field for quite a while over. Twenty years in. Three D visualization in general originally somewhat inspired by thinking about remote collaboration multiplayer virtual worlds getting together doing our meetings and then I actually had a startup around ten years ago had built a world based system now but just under desktop flat-screen rendered but in Three D. Where we had avatars we had a million people signed up. This was before the two thousand eight recession hit and sort of got a bunch of startups. But we we made a lot of progress got real far with that and along the way we learned a lot of Learn about a lot of heart problems infrastructure and in design and human factors and how to communicate effectively and again. This is just on flat screens with three representations if you move that forward into Vr. We're still at the place where we're learning how to effectively effectively use VR from a user interface standpoint from reforming standpoint from a design standpoint production So we're still learning this medium to be able to do that. Effectively kind of an open. World communication setup where this is. We're not playing a game. We're not mutually trying to solve a problem or achieve a quest together but more than an open ended communication wait. It's still pretty hard. There are several systems out there. That are trying to do this now. Vr Chat all space VR. I'm just going to name a few high fidelity there. They're all out there. They're all working but to do it. At scale. Effectively in Vr. Headsets still represents a host of challenges. Happy to kind of drill into any specifics that you want so still kind of baby steps amazingly even though the bits and pieces that add up to make VR technology even multi-player Vr are maturing to do what we're trying to do. I mean it's hard enough. It's been hard enough to get it. Set Up skype and zoom and Webex and all these other technologies reliably. We're pushing the limits now as you and I are speaking but to do this with VR to adds an extra layer challenge. And we're praying to God. That skype does an update. Because that'll break everything just so hopefully not in the middle of this conversation. Matt I Know Right. You guys have raised point three billion to try to basically be the rails behind a lot of this connected. Tech Future. Walk me through. What unity's doing what your role is so if you go far back unity's been around about fifteen years. The original mission hasn't changed too much. Originally it was about democratizing game development. If you go back to the early not. The situation was people making video games. They tended to be big studios have had enough resources to create the engine tack do all the Three d rendering to do all the multiplayer supportive. It's a multiplayer game to be able to do this in a way. That doesn't require building a whole new engine from scratch. That was unity's mission. Let's give people the tools to make games and that helped independent gaming take off like wildfire originally for Web with a web plugin back in the day on ABC's on consoles and then when mobile started taking off coming on ten years ago unity invested heavily in supporting the mobile platforms. That's where business really took off and that's pretty much the direction that unity took it's really early part of twenty tents then along comes. Vr augmented reality mixed reality in this latest wave with with Oculus and hollow lands and all these devices and Unity Linden. Hard to support those headsets and those other technologies around VR. Ar and what we discovered was and this was before my time. I shut up about four years ago but the company discovered was people in every industry were starting user technology because what they wanted to do was vr. They didn't necessarily WANNA make games. They WANNA do. Vr or a are for training for a contextual visualization to change the design process for how you design cars and other manufactured equipment to do different kinds of marketing content. I mean the list goes on but what we found was we were mostly a business that was oriented toward gaming when you look at the business side the technology overlaps greatly when when it comes to just doing VR in a more in a kind of Broadway and so what we discovered as we needed to learn more about these new industries that wanted to use our technology. And that's around. When I came on board at the end of two thousand sixteen to look at the auto industry to look at the film industry to look architecture and building and to see what those industries wanted out of our technology so we can better support them so we have spun up whole business practices around those now. If you look at this from a democratic point of view just really global overarching point of view. This is about computing going spatial. Now this is about the interface becoming three D so that is more meaningful more friendly maybe helps us remember things better for training gives us a more intuitive way to access information and communicate and across all those interests industries. I mentioned more. We're seeing the technology take hold and unity is in this position where we are powering. A huge percentage of that from the content creation side. GimMe a bold five or ten year. Vr prediction something. You believe most people around you. Most people around me wouldn't Sarkinas that again. I didn't hear that most people around you you can. You can exclude that exclude. The CO workers. Something most people wouldn't believe. I don't know what most people wouldn't believe this. But within ten years the way we access information historical information anything. We see on Wikipedia. That's all going to be through a three D interface. The Tutti interfaces we note at that point. We're going to have smart glasses when we may. We may look at some of these things still through little three D. Portholes but all the information at its base will be three being represented in Three D. Of course will still be looking at texts in a Tutti rectangle somewhere in that representation but the predominant you I paradigm is going to be Three D. I'm sure a lot of people actually agree with me on that but I would bet. More people don't necessarily see that vision but I see that as inevitable. Did you see that as the step wise chain companies like at applegate overthrown? Or did you see that as something they are able to roll in crush competitors. I see all of it happening. I see that large companies certainly aren't going to go away. I'd say big. Innovators like any of the large platform in hardware vendors. Continuing to thrive in this world. I also see room for all kinds of upstarts innovators because innovation tends to happen. Typically from newer upstarts who have a little more ability to focus and a little more drive but that usually then has some interplay with larger in industry players. So I I see this just growing I think there will be a new fortunes. Made new businesses established as there are with any new wave of technology to AR and VR. Slowly begin to merge or do they begin to diverge. This is a wonderful question. I have bounced around on on this concept a lot myself over the last three or four years. I wasn't at Camp for awhile where they are in. Vr We're going to converge. And I think part as and there will be one unicorn of a device one magical device. That could do everything. I'd have some glasses or contacts. Eventually SOME IMPLANT. He kind of thing you know. If you look way down the line that would be able to augment the physical world around me for a are mixed reality type of us and with some sort of theoretical slider some sort of dialogue. I could twist I could dial out the real world and just be in this. Opaque you know fully immersed setting and that may be true. But I've come around to think that's maybe not the way it's going to go and it's more likely that we'll have divergence of the hardware devices so that there are devices used to completely check out go into VR oculus quest kind of stuff player games going to completely synthetic world or visit. Some world has been captured really faithfully. But you just don't care you don't want the outside bugging you and you don't need to move around in any way where you're bumping object so you're just in a safe space and then there's all these other things which are going to be even bigger huger. 'cause it's as you're moving around in the real world it's going to be augmented with. Magical amazing information. I think those do divergent indifferent form factors. I guess one of the reasons I had been conflicting them in my own head for so long that I'm a software person. I work at a place that has a software platform is an engine for creating this content. Where by and large. It's the same content utilize different But I'm talking the three. The Three D. part is similar creating real time three D GRAPHICS. Creating synthetic information using real time hardware pipelines in that is common between Ar and VR cases. They use cases. Diverge the human factors diverge again. If I'm if I'm learning how to repair elevator it may. It probably makes more sense to have a mix reality headset where I see the elevator and it's augmented with information if I want to go in and do a firefighting in a theoretical scenario. Let's say a firefighter. And I go into a theoretical scenario burning building. That building may not exist in the real world. It'd be very expensive to send me there to do the training simulate all that perfect example. Some place where you want to be completely cut off a because because you want to be in a complete simulation of what that situation would look like and have as many of those senses and sensory inputs like the real thing. How do we prevent? Let's say we do get a decent now better question what Scifi movie book etc to see as being most realistic when it comes to both Ar Vr. I I watch a lot of SCIFI. So I'm just GonNa give a recent example because they can't possibly catalog everything I've seen over the years. It would take me there. I mean this goes back to star wars and Logan's run holograms if you go back far enough to the stuff inspire me when I was little but I think these days the thing I saw most recently was watching. Some episodes of the expanse Science Fiction TV show Familiar with it started on Scifi network. It's over on Amazon now. Pretty great as the show goes and this is set a few hundred years in the future. People have now populated Mars and the asteroid belt at which forms the backdrop of a political situation in solar system among the powers on Earth Asteroid Belt and Mars. But it's all the skin of science fiction with holograms with VR. And what I found most interesting out of that relative to you know today and how it was thinkers. Think about how things are going to shake out informed factors and whatnot. Is that when the actors are doing augmented reality? They're doing swipes in mid air from a flat little piece of glass. They still hold like imagine a future smartphone. That's just a thin sheet of glass but it's it's a physical Gizmo they'll swipe on that and then a Hologram will kind of fly up into the air around them that what's missing from that scenario. I just described is a pair of smart glasses so what will be interesting. Is All the smart glasses that everyone's theorizing about now kind of this intermediary step toward holograms. Just being everywhere in the air. Are they step? That never really takes off. We move straight to that. We'll see or contact lenses or contact lenses. And maybe that's why they're all wearing and that's how you see it anyway. That's just implied. Who knows but I thought that was a very effective way to do it. It makes for Great Cinema. It also means you're actors don't have to wear smart glasses everywhere right. Yeah it simplifies things a lot. One thing I worry about specifically with. Vr Is the junky effect of life. Being TA- More Boring than what we can simulate a million fold out. I think in this current corona virus crisis were seeing exactly the limitations of stay at home and plugging culture and from the. It doesn't janitorial though if it doesn't feel real. Well let's let's get to that in a segment let me at least finish the thought here The chitchat I see a lot right..

"ar" Discussed on Everyday Marksman Radio

"We're talking talking about marketing and more specifically about Air Fifteen and firearms marketing. Now know what you're thinking as. Oh well what are you going to try and sell me. Because that's what everybody does. Not What influencers do and I am not an influence. Or don't get me wrong on that one but everybody's trying to sell you something. So what am I gonNA GONNA sell you. Well the answer is I'm not because more specifically we're going to discuss why you should probably be ignoring all the marketing out there there because you see marketing firms make one fatal assumption that causes havoc with your development as a rifleman. Now I'm reminded of a story from back in episode eight when I talked to Russ Miller. And he was talking about this old cyber guy who showed up to an international sniper match in this guy must have been fifty sixty years old and he was using a sixty year old winchester model seventy and old little scope and he was going to go up against these twenty five year olds who were from all over the world from government agencies a military firing and using the highest dollar equipment that government money could buy. That's a really funny story when talk more about that later but for now. Let's get to the episode. So let's talk about what you will probably accustomed custom to seeing when it comes to Air Fifteen and firearms marketing. Imagine this you're sitting at the book store and you're drinking your coffee and your browsing through some gun magazines because there's always some on the shelf and you see that. And what do you see. It's not the ones that I typically see it's going to be a bunch of guys all kitted op in really nice looking tactical gear and they look heroic. They look awesome awesome. They look like jolly green giants striding the world and being bad asses and you think man. That's so cool. That's awesome. I want to do that. That is marketing. Would used to seeing is an emotional game same zig ziglar who was one of the most well known iconic salesman and motivational speakers. Ever use. Say That people don't buy hi for logical reasons. They buy for emotional reasons now. There are six universal emotions that we all feel real happiness. Anger disgust sadness. Fear and surprise those are the basic six now marketers love to use these. Let's talk about happiness as an example here when it comes to happiness people want to feel good about themselves so so they wanna put an ad in front of you that when you take action on this thing they want you to. Do you buy this widget. You go to that vacation. You're gonNA feel good about yourself. You did something awesome. You're happy we're having fun. This is great right. Think about all the time. You seem beer ads where there's some party going on with gorgeous women dancing around the pool. Everybody's having fun that's tapping into your happiness. Nobody cares the beer is good or not. It can be beer flavored water. But you're still going to want to buy it because is that's a life that you want and then we have anger. Anger works because we liked to rally around things that we don't like. Political advertisements are amazing at anger anger advertising. I can remember here just this last election here in Virginia which I've talked about before. Is that all the advertisements I saw. They were never her ever about the candidates themselves. All the good they were going to do. It was always about how terrible the other person was. And they're trying to make you get angry about that person so that you either. Not Doc. Vote for them or vote for the person who paid for the advertisement. Anger is really good at rallying groups of people together for a common cause. Then we have discussed which is really fun one because I was trying to think why this is different than anger but the end of the day discuss is about avoiding feeling bad about yourself yourself is. You don't want to do this thing because it's going to be disgusting. I remember lived in Montana and there was billboards everywhere are for not to do math. These were showing pictures of teenagers. Was Scars and bruises on the arms talking about trying to dig bugs out of their skin and he just felt. Will you felt grimy when you saw it. You know I'm never going to do that. That's disgust sadness and sadness. This is a pit amazed by these advertisements. You'd see for donating animal shelters or to starving kids in Africa where they show you sad pictures and play sad. Add music in the background and then try and make you think that man I do something about that. You feel that empathy moment right. These are great for social issues. Then we have fear and fear. Marketing is extremely powerful. Fear is deployed to sway. You away from something or even to something now for swing you away it could be. You might die if you did this thing. You should go here because you might die or something bad is going GonNa Happen to you or and probably more effective to me would be fear of missing out that if you don't buy my product if you you don't do this thing I want you to do then you are going to lose. You'RE GONNA miss out on what kind of life you could have. You won't be happy. I think it's a subtle difference between fear that you won't be happy as an advertising tactic or just saying that you could be happy in a way I think is probably more effective to make people fear fear that they won't be happy to show them something. Happy that well. If you did this you would be happy. You know what I mean right. Let me know lasted lasted. We have surprises something. Unexpected now the bottom line is that emotional. Campaigns are twice as effective compared to rational campaigns. So that's why we see ads old as before. Emotional campaigns were positive thing they talk about the benefits of their product. Why their product was? It's the best in the market. As because at tangible real things you could look at and measure that was the rational advertising and then we realized that nobody bought that or they he did but it was more effective to make people fear that will happen to. They didn't buy your product. So how does this apply to firearms marketing in particular. Now gun companies love to the market to your fear and your desires for happiness consider the rather infamous bushmaster ad which they got a lot of heat for and lawsuits and all it was a picture picture of basic. Ar Fifteen with with the snake logo in the corner that said consider your man card re issued who is at marketed to there is nothing in hear about what the gun is made out of. What's perceive material? Its barrel twist Ray all the stuff that I would care about as a data nerd all it said or implied was that if I didn't buy their product than I was less of a man lots of that's a fear tactic right there so it's really two ways you could go could be. I'm someone who's afraid. Afraid of my emp being emasculated a Dubai this weapon so I feel manly or it's marketed towards people who wanna feel more manly and general. He'll I feel good about themselves because they're more manly. They have their man card fig about all the ads you've seen of elite looking guys carrying mean looking weapons. It's all an emotional appeal that U2 can be like them just by buying my chest rig or by my rifle says has nothing about the fact that these guys also train all the time in practice there all in really good shape so maybe they can sell you some workout gear while they're at it. It's just it's all meant to appeal to your motions anyway. I'm not well. Let's move on now lest you think I'm forgetting regular people who aren't going to be your paid advertisers heiser thing about influence or economy here instagram and Youtube. All right message. Boards are full of people who have more money than sense. And they're what we call gatekeepers. There's in any community you're going to get together. There's GonNa be the people who find it easier to spend money than to go practice and they are going to kind of get in the door with each other and they're going to salvage the gate so if you join some precision rifle oriented message boards not GonNa call anybody out you're gonNA feel like you're not actually competitive unless you will spend six thousand dollars and that dissuades people from getting started because that barrier to entry seem so high. How many times have you been told that you're going to end up dead in the streets because you didn't buy their particular Brandin pistol or you bought a pistol? That God forbid has a manual safety on it. Who's been telling you that you need to buy no less us than a four hundred to five hundred dollars custom stainless steel barrel? Or you're just not gonNA be competitive or you're never gonNA make that shot at six hundred yards. It's not me. It's not the people who actually know what they're doing. They have all been remarkably consistent on their message. Consider this quote from Russ Miller back in episode. Don't worry about how good or bad the equipment the equipment has to be good in the sense that asked to function reliably. Don't think that you need to get the best. Most accurate accurate super-duper turbo charge time. You don't well. That doesn't sound very market. He does it he says by something. That's reliable able and use it. Don't worry about something super awesome because it doesn't matter what's that's that's boring. What about John? Simpson back in episode. Two I wish that they would I wish that they would maximize capabilities with what they have. You know before they complain that they have to have The the next the next piece of wonder Gear Jeff Cooper used to say that the definition of a good rifleman is someone who can shoot up to the ability of the rifle. Because there's here's the honest. Truth is most rifles. Today are so well made compared to sixty seventy years ago that most people who own them are utterly incapable edible of shooting up to the ability of that rifle. What good is it GonNa do somebody to buy a rifle that can shoot one half minute of angle? We're talking talking one inch groups at two hundred yards when that person doesn't practice enough to even do eight minutes and Bagel themselves. It doesn't make sets. The truth is that there is no money to be made by telling you to practice more gun. Manufacturers are really not all all that interested in helping you improve your skills with that rifle they want to sell you solutions so that you don't have to a practice that you don't have to feel bad about yourself because you made a bad wind call now. Go back to thinking about about my April twentieth. Nineteen America's rifle challenge match report. Where on a whim? I decided to use my twenty inch government profile barrel. Ar and I. I was like well. We're we're going to see what's going to happen here so I show up and everybody around me is using these tricked out sixteen inch guns. And they're all superlight and they're all super giddy and here I am with my musket and you know what I did alright. I didn't win. I didn't expect to win. I was out of practice but I did all right and the fact that I was missing the five hundred yard Gong had nothing to do with the fact that I was using a standard chrome lined barrel. It was the fact that I couldn't read win. I'm very well and it was very windy. It was probably thirty. Thirty five knots and I had no idea where to try and hold over. I lost that one. Not because my scope wasn't good enough. It was because I wasn't stable enough. I had not practice enough on how to shoot off barriers to be stable likewise on the C.. QB stages when. I was running around their little setups plywood. And I did pretty well after one a couple of stages even though I had a twenty inch barrel everyone and the message boards will tell you is too long to be effective in Cq. I did well. Could I have done a little better. If I was running something shorter. Maybe it wouldn't have done five seconds better. Maybe a fraction of a second better. The simple truth is that I need to spend.

"I think it's I think blockchain is a is a is a natural way to to make that happen. You know when we look at the last three years into the biggest evolutions to today and then we look at the next three years. Here's one how would you Trace in you start your fund me a district three years ago. So what is the biggest changes you've seen in the space and of curious. I would sort of the biggest inflection points you will hit in in the next three years I think basically from Oculus said from. Let's say kind of that Sale for right around there so it's called two thousand fourteen. I think two thousand fifteen to when I started my fund there. It was a bit of irrational exuberance irrational exuberance around VR ar and everybody was just crazy excited about the are natural why. I'm not sure what the people are like natural. You know people didn't really have a sense of what it was what it was going to become and And there's a lot of excitement a lot of people putting a lot of money in the companies and that's that's died away as is generally the you know how things happened and in In the world at least that I've seen new technologies come that come out people freak out. I think that they have to get money into it right away. And from what. I've seen gene so far my short life as VC. That's that's a surefire way on how to lose money and eventual Roth like if your if you're the one who is jumping from Tom from hot area too hot area You're probably not gonNA. Your returns probably are not going to be great so anyway so so that the happened. That died away and then I think that from inflection standpoint and there's less less money going into early stage. VR AR companies or early stage specials special competing companies. I should say There's still companies unease there still Funds that are doubling down on their existing bets. But I see less going on at the early stage I think an inflection point is going to be I think that the quest was kind of an inflection point. I think this holiday season will be. It will be an interesting time. I think we'll see some great numbers. You know. Mark Zuckerberg said I think it was mark that said that he was like we are creating these things as fast as we can so they are somewhat constrain that imagine on the supply side But I do think that this is the first time that you can really get a unit That is just all in one. Ready to go tune amazing experience in. It's at a decent price point. So you know facebook as a strategy geographic Google's dragged here obviously net flicks Sony Apple. Ten years from now we come back. We're doing this podcast. WHO's made the most money either directly or indirectly From of the comments from from spatial computing. I do you think about sort of the different strategies. Microsoft obviously had anything different strategies. They're they're deploying good question. I think Microsoft is in a good kind of sleeper position. They're the operating system that people use it kind of is it coincidence that they're in that position. What meaning like Would you have expected that you know a decade ago. I'm not sure I think it has only become more obvious to me. It's become more obvious to me over time that they're in such a strong rate and is it because they miss mobile so they're like hey we can't miss the next one. I'm I'm not entirely sure. I just think they have the underlying op day of the underlying operating system and the just the APP ISM in a good position so so I think I think that they will be in a good position from that standpoint just being the underlying operating system and while they have have a in my eyes at least from what I've seen it seems like they've divested a little bit like they were kind of for a little while taking a very interesting approach that I really agreed with which was like we'll just provide the operating system and will license out technology or will work with a whole bunch of different hardware suppliers. Let you guys build. Like the low margin hardware products will help you build the software that will make it run properly. There hasn't been as much interest. I haven't seen that much push on that side. Although they are going in you know they do have the best Ayar device out their hands down with with Hololens and so maybe that's the way that they can continue to sneak in anyway. I think Microsoft is going to be in a good position. I have a lot of have faith in in the new leadership over there. I think apple is going to continue to innovate in the space. I think they're gonNA start with the they're going to continue to kind of grow in in your ear and then I think they're probably within the next year or two they'll release something With glass that'll probably basically be like the apple. Watch but on your face so slick looking notifications not necessarily depth and and you know Really Realistic Three D. But just kind of screen on your face. Essentially where we're notifications are easy to are easy easiest spot and then I think I think Oculus is in an interesting position. I mean. They're certainly the ones that are are in the lead right now. The our side. They are really building this whole you know. They're they're building the full stack but I don't know what the vision is long-term on there. I knew what the vision is long-term there when when the founders were in there but now you know mark has a lot of different things to consider like a bird has a lot of different things thanks to consider and where VR ar kind of ranks up there. I'm not sure I mean from the outside. There's no like he is investing full-bore. Oh bore in a to oculus. There is a ton of money that they're putting after aren't D.. And and all that stuff so I don't think he I don't think it's going to back off I. I don't think it's GonNa go anywhere but I you know he's got a monstrous in ninety five percent of his businesses wrapped up in this one product and I have a feeling that's where the majority Giardi focus is going to go while Google. I think that Google will be interesting to say. Look I think ultimately this isn't going to be a winner take all situation This is going to be the evolution of computing in every major technology is going to every major technology company is going to have a hand in that future. Looks like So I think Google is in dominant position for searching for information as a whole. Oh and they'll be able to. They should be able to leverage at information. Well for for the future spatial. I heard this one framework for thinking about how the Internet guy begging. I think it's relevant to other platforms to it's called the three. ps not how it got big but the first behaviors that were popular and they tend to be sorted. Aigars I think three these were Porn pills and poker. Are we seeing similar activity in Vr in terms like is that I think that Crypto it's drugs porn presents an interesting option because simply only because of the logistics of it. The fact that you have somebody somebody made a really funny comment will have sucking to somebody really funny about the way that when when main you were growing up it was parents that got it. was you that got scarred when your parents walked in on you if you if you're if you're masturbating and it's going to be flipped when our kids grow when our flip when our kids grow up it's going to be the parents scarred because the kids not going to know any better just going to be in a headset during these so I think that the very nature of it makes it a little bit different but I think anecdotally I am hearing that. There is a fair amount of usage. It's difficult to track because most of the time it's just like people looking through browsers anecdotally. I hear that there's that there's a fair amount of that that goes on Poker is interesting there was. I definitely think that this is a use case that people are going to really enjoy gambling and poker. I don't know about pills as much but but poker and porn and what science fiction are you inspired by most You'd you see miss most open that it involves. VR Is some people say this way in future as inequality continues to rise in ride both economic but also genetic with figure out Chris Brown stuff that Hey oh just put the less fortunate people in in headsets and go imagine you're live virtual wonderful about Sifi in this basis face. It's an interesting question. I guess this is just on the spot thinking but like in video games There is this notion ocean that people don't like to pay. I forgot what they call Not Pay to play Play to win a paid a win. Basically where you can power power up your characters to a degree that they just you know you pay a couple of hundred bucks and all of a sudden your character is way more powerful than everybody else out there. You're just wrecking getting people You could in a dystopia in you know from putting on my my cynical hat you could think about a future where the people both who are rich and privileged have a are devices that just kind of gives you an advantage in situations nations that other people potentially don't if I've got a R contact lenses in I've got a subscription to the Wall Street Journal and in some other really interesting of business periodicals and I can pull up information faster than you. Who can't afford it and only has access access to what's freely out there or something like that? Then I kind of have an advantage over you amend business situations so so. I don't know that that could be one where you know. That could be something that that wouldn't be a very pleasant future You know you're you're a you're at a party you're you're you know. Networking at an event in four people are standing there who will all rich and privileged talking about crazy interesting things and being able to pull up facts. It's like that and you're sitting there as the as the Guy Who can't afford any of that stuff is just trying to keep up with the conversation you would have my hobbies is restore up and I am excited about a world in which the right rhyme or potential rhyme just shows up a are as. I'm as as rhyming. Another space. You mentioned jerks about is Productivity the air is that related to training different train. How do you think about what that might look like? No I think about that I think about that as the things things that I mostly use my laptop for right now which is like sending emails looking over documents. Like all those things you know having to carry around a laptop and having talk hunch over while on that laptop is crappy. I wish there was a better alternative at the very least. I wish there was that one of the one of the laptop companies would come out with a laptop where the screen telescopes Sadeq actually at my eye level. Hunch over when I'm looking after one of those stupid desk stands so you know rather than right now even in my head. This sounds kind of ridiculous us to say but rather than going to to a coffee shop and pulling out my laptop going to a coffee shop throwing on a headset that enables me to have have six screens up and be able to sit comfortably entitled man that that futures would be amazing that that would be amazing for me as somebody who wants to get productivity done walking no starbucks and seeing eighteen people in there with all headsets on is scary if I felt the one with the headset instead on but it is just a way more natural way like it. I think I think I would be more. I'll just put it this way. I think I would be much more productive if if I had a way to block out the outside world and be sit comfortable in an economic fashion and be able to have all of my computers in all information in a really Economic Onomic matter in front of me. Do you worry about a world but it were some people painted dystopia. There's this Famous photo of Mark Zuckerberg walking down.

"I think training is one that has gotten a lot of attention. Biggest deal yet done in the private of IT sector With Enterprise has been a company called strive for that has inked a deal with Walmart and they're using VR to train people had to be better sales representatives. So I think that's one example. Another example is a company called Osa. VR which does medical training and You know highly immersive training for doctors to help them practice and get comfortable with different things that they're going to see in the medical room. I'm also comfortable with different devices that they're going to be using in the medical room and they're getting some amazing. Traction Markson is another company Also Anorak Portfolio Company company that is developing a content management system and and and software stack essentially to enable people to visualize ECOMMERCE commerce products wherever they are so it's you know it's whether or not it's VR Ar. It starting one area that I'm incredibly interested interested in as like the digitisation of the physical world. So you know this whole concept which a lot of nerdy VC's talk about called digital twinning which is like everything. Everything in the world in the future should have digital twin. We should have. We should have a digital representation of our world accessible to us and we're so far from there right now but in the future of everything done software really eats the world than having a having all of the world digital version of it. It makes it's perfect sense. And so whether or not that before I think e commerce is an obvious place right now but for other industrial applications nations as well when you're building When you're building new structure is when you're for maintenance of existing structure is for for applications nations for designing products? All these different things. All these things are going to have the. There's going to be a there's is going to be a need to have a place to be able to organize. Serve up this content and so that's one of the things that that that marks his doing. Is this idea where you know. When the Internet became ubiquitous there was sort of this tendency to take everything that was You've done offline and put it online On my copy version and some of that was very successful zestful but was also is accessible. Were sort of new behaviors that were enabled uniquely by the Internet. Are we starting to see that yet in in in Vr. Or is it mostly Eh copying and of jurists what are unique experiences that could only be enabled by VR. It's a really interesting comparison like yeah when when the Internet first came around it was just like everybody was just like yeah. Let's just put everything up Darren. It'll work just the same you know and what happened. A lot of dead bodies in the bubble I think I see some of that in In vr ar where it's just oh that works on your phone Oh that should be in Vr as well and so that's one thing that I would caution founders of out you know just just doing something because it's cool rather than actually solving a problem really thinking through the use case yet from an enabling technology standpoint It's interesting it kind of takes me back to the to the beginning. Ginning of oculus Len. As soon as people knew that I was involved in Oculus and I started to have conversations with people the ideas is that would come out of people are were everything under the Sun. All you can do this or you can do that. Oh you can do this and the founders of Oculus hard this even more more than I did and sometimes you just want to shake people and be like yet..

"Dance you turn it on you. Pop It on your head. And you're in there and it's wireless. It's a pretty While moment I really when it came out. I think I tweeted. We did something like everything. Beforehand was Beta like this really felt like the first consumer great product. Now that said I have an uncle who is not tech savvy. Eighty who. I wanted to try this out and I sent it to him and it's still sitting in the box like a month later and his his daughter daughter came in to try to help him set up. Set it up. He couldn't figure it out so it's still got a little ways together still not super easy but I think that that was you know that that was close to an iphone moment as we've had so far. VR and I was watching when he really talks in. You mentioned that it fifty million is that the magic number. Yeah Suze more about that. Yes so so. Fifty million is the number that that people have used previously in technology to demonstrate when something has really re has somewhat reached mass-market ass market Reached a substantial number of people fifty million people so fifty minute. Fifty million headsets actually shipped out. There is kind of the will be a milestone for VR. When it happens we're pretty far off there at the moment but I think over the next year two years will be close to their I don't have numbers in front of me but I WANNA say that we're at or probably add something like twenty million at this point fifteen or twenty million who are with these fifteen They're playing games would it. What are they doing? Majority playing games but there were you know that also includes headsets that were shipped with phones for a little while. Google was shipping daydream with phone Samsung shipping gear with phones for a little while. So I I wouldn't say that those are Majority he kind of high frequency users but now the people who were purchasing our you know our high frequency users and also their retention numbers are really really starting to cloud and you say that they are the true. Ar is maybe five or ten years back from year five years back from VR VR. We are mainstream is probably three two to three years so I think we're ten years away from it years ago with him go people were more excited about. Ar for for a little bit but you say hey sort of a mobile ar and those Gerard we should differentiate between. Maybe I mean look let me just let me just say this. So I'm I'm a huge Google Fan. Boy I love Google. I am all in on their ecosystem. So I have in my hand right now as you can see a pixel two and I just uttered a pixel four got it and I just sent it back. Why because how are you going to create a new? This phone found his two years old. It has a twenty it has twenty seven hundred million battery in it I think is the right word. Ma Age the new pixel. That just came out two years later. Two and and a half years later has a twenty eight hundred million battery. I'm getting rid of this thing. I want a new phone because the pixel battery life is so crappy and they send me a new one that has doubled. Ah has doubled the pixel density Processors festival all this stuff in the batteries pretty much the same size. I was absolutely astonished. I used it for like today is battery. Life was so bad I was like no. I'm not I'm not GONNA do. This might point is is that we can't even make a darn cell phone. That is really an amazing thing yet. And and what we're talking about is mini trying everything in a cell phone and putting it into something that is indistinguishable distinguishable from a pair of glasses like. We're far away from that. We can't even get our phones right yet. And these are the top technology companies in the world. That are working on this problem. So we've we've got time right and even on the mobile front was pokemon. Go serve the only thing that's taken that that sort of a flash in the PAN for for me or it was just because it was The yeah I think I think it was a combination of things I think it being. Poke Mama certainly part of it and I. I do think it was a anomaly. Let's say they're at to my knowledge. There really hasn't been much that has come close close since ninety six previous company. Our previous game In English. I think it's called or something along those lines Still I think has pretty loyal loyal user base I don't know how their new Harry Potter game is doing but Yeah I think it was. It was a neat gimmick. That people liked and I. I don't know what else now I do think that it does have good use cases but from a numbers perspective. I think that was just just that just was beyond everybody's expectations. I think there is the potential and it's one of the areas that I'm excited about like Hauer New Game Companies. He's that are leveraging location that are leveraging a are that are leveraging persistence. I think that you know an persistence. Persistence meeting being that. You put an object down in a park in augmented reality. You come back two days later. It still. They're very difficult problem to do. But if you can do it right imaginative like digital treasure hunting into digital fans that you can do So I think new gaming companies out there that that use these tools intelligently in that are built from the ground up for this type of thing are going to emerge Do have the potential to be absolutely massive. But there's nothing that I can point to at the moment but I think enterprise applications applications as well home decorating like there's other use cases where mobile ar make sense but it's not a natural way to use your phone. I mean it's not natural to walk walk around and hold the phone out in front of you and search all over the place but for isolated incidents when you're talking about doing something for for industrial applications or doing doing something for home decorating or like different things like that are searched. Perhaps I think it makes sense so let. Let's try to get a lay of the land for when we talk about Investing spatial computer right. Now you sort of break up the world into gaming enterprise and infrastructure and I gave me all consumer going to gaming because that's what consumers right now we're pretty much. Yep So unpack. Those three categories in where the different subcategories within them are or. How do we sort of make sense of sure? So I think Gaming Y- gaming is the most obvious one. You've got your bigger players in there like valve oculus. LS Sony and other game publishers. Who are also interested in getting into the space and how do they compete with sort of the non VR gaming ecosystem or sort of EASTBOUND How does that interface? I don't know if it's necessarily them competing. I think Aaron. VR is just another avenue that a a lot of these companies are exploring. So when are we gonNA have a Unicorn and company in that space or are there new startups likely to think. NIANTIC is a Unicorn Company in that. Space I think that there's some great teams right now. They're working on just VR Ar that have seen in great success not a Unicorn level yet But but they'll get there and like I said I think a lot of the big gaming companies like Ubisoft is is is about to leverage some of the big Ip for VR releases I think that we're GONNA see these companies that are UNICORNS. That are that are that are coming into the space data uh-huh and so have you invested any. VR game companies are to them or. What really excites you there? Where do you think would make a bet? Potentially there I have I I think that Interaction in VR is a really exciting. Like that's that was another one of those magic moments that I had in. VR On was. When I tried out a game that announced allowed me to interact with somebody else And it was just one again one of those just kind of fat mind-blowing experiences and so I love the social aspect of Vr. I am invested in a company. Anthony called Rec Room there previously called against gravity but the product was rec room. Now they're just called requiem amazing company that is based up in Seattle and and they're really focused on creating a fun straightforward environment for people to get together be able to express express themselves create. There's a lot of user generated content in there. There's a lot of people who are using. who were? They built all these amazing creation tools that enable people to create worlds and then they don't make things they keep things kind of simple in terms of game mechanics. VR Is difficult enough as it is like. There's a lot a lot of people who there's a steep learning curve there and I think that what they've done is they've hammered home just really fun and straightforward gaming mechanics so that you can get in there and you can jump into a paint ball game and it's like Oh this paintball I get it like I have a gun on mentorship dealer team boom. There's no you know Tracy upgrades. There's no you know. There's no super complicated game mechanics that some of the more standard gaming companies have created in in order to kind of differentiate themselves from from pack. So I really love that company that leadership or herb bunch of visionaries in the space ace do sandbox. VR In the category Yes well said about tomorrow's more location based entertainment so that's another group of of of companies so things like sandbox. VR The void which are building these experiences that people travel to to get into VR. It's kind of it's kind of a bit ironic Has the hope one of the things about the ours at it can transport you anywhere so to actually have to get in your car drive rob someplace and then the only top VR's quite quite funny but anyway That is sandbox. VR In the void are are very cool experiences end. They allow you to happen. Ah VR experience but they matched they match your physical world with what you're seeing being in Vr and so you can walk around the giant warehouse that just you know if you're looking at it from top down perspective would look like a rat's maze that you're walking through but because you're in Vr. The walls rather than just being playing pieces of plywood are actually you know. Gates that are You know this amazing kind of like iron that are blocking out heat coming from the other side like so you can do all kinds of things in VR and you combine the two new create these lb your your location Mason. Why does a sixteen Z Horowitz veto? Back up the truck. Put a lot of money Like that they think you know. How does that begin unicorns people it becomes a cultural movement? That people are just doing that. It's Geller do they. Do is that just a wedge to get into something else. That's something that you'd have to ask. Ah I can't answer that I think location based entertainment is is interesting but how it becomes a billion dollar opportunities Something that I don't. Yeah they're getting data using some other thing. You've mentioned another company you must also in an investor in a company called DRIFTER mm-hmm which is an amazing team. They're kind of just like a super high cowboy game developers previously from epic and a and a bunch lunch of a bunch of top studios. And the guys just kind of all connected over their shared love of virtual reality and Her creating think some pretty amazing experiences. They're drawing on their Triple a title F- PS experience But look the market is early. And they've because of the type of work that they put out. They've had a whole bunch of people a whole bunch of inbound ingested. The people saying that we what you're able to do. We'd love it if you would work with us and help us bring this kind of this.

I haven't tracked them as much as I probably should did. I think second life was an incredibly interesting is an incredibly interesting game. Surely there's some learnings wings there with second life that they should be able to leverage with high fidelity but I haven't really been tracking them. How about enterprise?

"Welcome to another episode of interest stories by Global. I'm here today. Joined by Greg Castle of Anorak Venture Gregg. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you thanks for being here in a that is A. Is that a nod to ready player. One suits to it's two things it's It's kind of a a slang term for nerd and in Europe so anoraks are somebody who are people who are deeply focused bordering on obsessive in new subjects. And then it's also a nod nod to To ready player one which it was the avatars name of the one of the main characters in the book into a the focus. Anorak is spatial computing. Would you say is the Is the theme ended thesis done so I think you know when you reach out to me. We were talking talking about the podcast. New mentioned we're GONNA focus on VR Ar. I think special competing is a more inclusive term. That's more accurate as to all of the kind of software and hardware around quote Unquote Vr. Ar So you know it. Encompasses things like computer vision that people they're using and location in all the other things around that helped make the Arnelle so I just think it's more inclusive term I think How from an Anorak perspective so I really invest in companies that are being built around offensive technologies because of some of the companies that have invested in the past? Because of my background. I spent a lot of time in spatial computing but I also like other areas around around. VR Ar Robotics Division. He's been a lot of time gaming aspirin defer amount of timing gaming but also I think honestly really weren't wearing the innovation being here in Silicon Valley and I'm also opportunistic Good founders working on really interesting problems than than and I like to take and sometimes participate as well and when was the most because you've had pretty varied experience in in different sectors. When was the moment he said? This says what you want to double down on as an investor. If I had to bring it to one point that was probably use when I first tried on a headset the prototype where wear it really kind of blew me away. There's there's times in everyone's life. I think where you try technology and it's like magic And for different people. It's different things I had some people. It's the first time they They play first person shooter. Sometimes it's the first time that they see you know a robot in action For me it just happened to be the first time I tried on that headset in his house. How's it was magical? And so other disease. Some of the receives have tried on that headset but said hey you know what it's it's too early for mayor. It's too risky era. Just don't see the venture opportunities right now. Would you see that. They don't see the thing that look there were. There were loads of knows for Oculus in the beginning. Founding team can tell you that way better than I can I think the the perfect storm if you will of of me and determining that it was an investment that I wanted to make was not only having that magic moment but also and being wowed by the technology but also knowing the team That was getting together behind the opportunity and knowing what that team was capable of because I had worked with him beforehand. I'd known them for a while and it was like that perfect marriage of like this technology is magic in. This is the type of team that could that could. That could create something amazing. But what do you tell no other. BBC's you bring them your deals and if they just looking at say. Hey where does not doing this right now. They think it's too early. How do you how? What is the most convincing evidence you have that? No they should be. Think about some of the stuff right right now. It's a good question. I mean timing. Is Everything in in venture Invest too early in. It's it's not different from being wrong. I think you've got to. You've got to have a long-term perspective on where the future is going on that long term perspective behalf to be has to include things beyond just these stupid rectangles that we all carry around and laptops that were on you have to. I believe that that future is is going to be a more natural way to interact with technology and you have to have the patients and the durability in the excitement and the understanding that it's GonNa take a while to get there but ultimately that is where we're going and so if you've got that belief in you've got an and and your time horizon lines up with With that future and you have confidence that the team look future is not coming tomorrow. Were the AUGMON. The reality is not coming tomorrow. It's going to be a while until we get there But there are lots of different things that are investable testable along the way that can help you know build the fundamentals of of of this kind of spatial Computing Future Asia. And so I think look. That's that's a hurdle that I have to overcome when I make an investment as well. It's like you know we've got eight nine ten years. I think before we get to an interesting place with augmented reality What is your plan for years to three and then really believing that if they're able to accomplish steps one two three that it's going to put them in a great position for steps four or five six seven eight nine ten so I think I I think those are probably the two factors making sure that they align with with the vision of what the future looks like in and then helping them understand how that what that what that companies go to market strategy as in why it makes sense totally and I want to get into some of the stuff that were guessing today but first let's take a minute to in paint the Paint the future a little bit. You mentioned moving beyond our our laptops in squares in our pockets meeting our phones. Would you see where where where well removing Regardless of when it is would you have. I think what what excites me is that we're still still in a phase where there's so much information now that's available to us all the time and the information in the data is all there. It's just like in data science. There's so much data there but the question is is it super usable and so I think what excites me. Me is now that we have all this data now that we're collecting all of these different data points. How do you now it? It's still a technical challenge but are also kind of becomes like a design challenge and a culture challenge. It's like how do we start to make it so that that information is readily accessible to us we're accessing it in a natural way. That doesn't totally mess with how we communicate our interpersonal skills. How we communicate with other people and so that future of kind of like the melding between like fashion and technology and culture and technology in all those different things? Things is really where I think things get get interesting and so I think we've got a a while to go like the social social norms of what you do when you speak on a cell phone in public in a restaurant all those different things. Were still just starting to figure out as a polite to text. When I'm sitting with somebody else's is it? You know all of those things are still being figured out and I think we've got a lot lot more to figure out 'cause 'cause technologies only GonNa get better and better but I. I think that I see I see a future. Where interacting with technology is going to be much more natural Thing and and that goes not only for visual where we have information overlaid on our environment but that also goes for types that also goes for audio that also goes for all. These are other senses that we communicate and we understand the outside world with right now just focused on screens but but there's other things out there as well. That are exciting. What form factors are you most excited about or do you think are going to Be Most popular. I think audio I'm in the near future is going to be very interesting On on the recording of this apple this morning just recorded their ipods. They just announced what's their I pods pro which seemed to be a much cooler version of the IPODS. Where where you have the ability to do you know you can keep them in your ears all day and you can? You can turn it so that it's completely passenger so you're hearing everything like you normally would. You could turn on sound reduction or you can listen to music when you want to audio is just where. We're pretty comfortable wearing that pretty much all day long and I think we have this thing that I call and I wrote a blog post about this but I think a are one point. Now augmented reality one point L.. When were what do I need? I don't really need a pair of glasses that show me realistically that a Monster Smash through the wall behind you. What I really need something? That's in my ear. That tells me that you know in in twenty minutes. I need to leave for an appointment or get any late or that. My fiance called and left a very important message. Like I just need some subtle technology. Ag Kids that that make it that make it easier for me. I think ten years down the road we we will potentially have those glasses overland formation seamlessly. But right now I I think I'm excited about kind of what a are one point now is going to look like an. I think the new air pods are going to be a nice. There's just going to be more and more things that are introduced. Make It easy Z.. And end up more acceptable. Shall we say to have audio in your ears all day long totally. I want to trace a little bit of the the history of A VR AR in terms of. What's what were the sort of different waves of aitor or moments later? Or how do we conceptualize where we are now. In in in terms of where we've been it was interesting so I was having thinking about this this morning knowing that I was going to be speaking to just trying to see what companies had been had raised in the past before Oculus game around in terms of VR Ar and. There really wasn't much that there really wasn't that much. VR VR before Oculus was really focused on either morar kind of just displays a head mounted displays like Sony had a product before Oculus came out that was basically enabled you. It seemed like there was a big screen in front of your face. And you can watch movies on it when you're on you you know Flights or whatnot and the other use cases were really all around military. So that's where a lot of this technology eighty came from was was military training and not in the sense not only in the sense of kind of what it would be like battlefield but also in terms of training and helping soldiers overcome things like PTSD. So that's where the majority of of the innovation was beforehand. So you know. I think it's really opened up the doors. From a consumer perspective event host. oculus there is a whole lot of excitement is oculus. Give us sort of like the iphone moment or is it like wherever's ten years between years before the natural it's difficult to call it iphone moment because the iphone was came out of the gates with very capable piece of technology but I think I think it was the it was an iphone moment in the sense that the people saw in got excited about a about the technology. It's not really for the first time but really like it. It really excited a lot of people's interest and excitement in the space. And what will a real iphone moment like. I think has done a pretty good job OCULUS latest release like it is it is a all in one device that really gives you an immersive experience..

"All Right Jessica big week in the streaming world in the media world the streaming wars are officially on Disney releases Disney plus some pretty compelling numbers behind that you and I wrote a story about Hulu a lot going on there. But let's just start off with with Disney. Plus what were your initial reactions to Tuesday's the first shots fired tired of streaming wars. So you know as you know. Tuesday was a little bumpy. A lot of people have you know when I got up in the morning there were already social. Media was a flare about all the you know error messages people were getting Having problems logging on I personally had to me a little take time to render. But I didn't have a hard time getting on by the way It was it was hard to find on the apples. The the APP store which was great but once I got download it it worked for me. Yeah so I mean look I actually I mean I actually am not surprised there were a few dumpsite you know. I think they're usually a few bombs. uh-huh with this yes. You could make the argument that like they should have. Had everything figured out you know they had months to do this but you know it was a huge launch it it was a it was like an unprecedented number of people logging on all at the same time. So it's sort of devices right. I mean they. They release was saying on his many possible streaming devices as they could right exactly. So you know I. I wasn't really surprised or put off by the fact that in tech issues I mean I. It seems like things even doubt although I prescribed customer service issues which I actually think it's a bigger problem or they don't have that now down. I mean everyone who's washed it and come back to me with rave reviews. Everyone loves a delorean. And you know I think that like people will forget about this in a few months. Honestly right yeah I mean the real product here is the content. That's what I mean. Obviously Disney did not want this to go wrong in any way and and they spent heavily in buying Bam tech to make sure they had top-class streaming technology and test this thing in the Netherlands but but by a large right right. I mean like the killer feature of this thing is is the fact that they have the entire Disney library or close to it and all these vendors Massari and all these marvel movies and things like that then and I imagine that's the thing that's going to keep people subscribing and you know you as someone with some kids. I imagine that is something that will keep you subscriber if you were to remain one. Yeah I mean absolutely and you know what I find interesting is like cheer point like it was hard to find on the apple store like. I haven't gotten my offer from verizon yet about signing up for it for free like I think that like there will be. There's still room for them to push some of this marketing. I think when it's easier to find in the apple menu imagine this menu and the fact rise and actually starts promoting it You're going to see more. I personally think. Some of that was intentional. Because they saw there's going to be so much demand on the first day right right and other criticism that I've heard and I should also in this part plugged the story that you Kevin McLaughlin and I published earlier which said that inside Disney one of the culprits they were pointing to is aws which wasn't able to scale up. Its servers fast enough to deal. What the demand? I'm sure by the way there are a multitude of things going in there so it's really more of a working theory. Then you know an absolute blame but but yes I mean like this was something that Disney he wanted to be as big as possible. They marketed so heavily. They struck this verizon deal and in the end they got ten million subs. That is. That's real numbers. That's something the absolutely can take pride in as having been successful in the right. Yeah I think that even if everyone of those users getting it for free which I don't think the gays let's see huge number I mean you know. There's no one's to have that number of my first day. I mean that puts them rain fourth place automatically adequately immediately one day. Yeah so yeah. I don't think you can discount that number. Be Like Oh we don't know what's in that number to be. We don't know what that number we'll look like six months from now sure or a year from now if a lot of it is verizon which gave it a year for free which I think kind of brings up the next part of the the Disney streaming challenge which is okay. You've clearly put it. Put out something that abroad audience really likes. Release it around the world in the coming months. But how do you keep these these people on board. How do you stop them? From churning and that to me is going to be one of the biggest challenges for them is. How do they stop loss? When you you know it's such a competitive landscape and so many more apps are going to be coming online in the next couple of months of years right and that's going to really come down to obviously the content and what they keep putting out putting on their how they grow at and it'll be interesting to see because it serves students from our standpoint that bats where the focus is going to be creating content for their streaming platforms as opposed to credit unions for their cable channels? Right right a whole other interesting topic but the other thing I think that's going to be huge and in in promoting Disney Disney plus. Is this bundle that they have where they are going to be offering for a pretty pretty competitive price. Twelve ninety nine a subscription to Disney plus and ESPN plus and. Hulu and Hulu is it is kind of important leg of the chair and we. We looked at that in a story that we ran this week. I mean you know now. Disney's attention to sort of focusing on Hulu. I mean what does Disney sort of needs to do to make sure that who remains as important as the other two legs of the stool. I mean I think they have to continue to keep Hulu being at I personally think like Hulu has established itself Aetna great brand in the United States leased Done really good job of immune beezer exact people who they know how to deal with Trevor Acquisition position. They know how to deal with marketing. Like Hulu is very established company. I think the risk for Hulu is if Disney just kind of makes is it part of the Bob Dole and doesn't allow it to be its own separate company at the same time. If that makes sense I think that there's a lot of expertise. There are and Disney as the issue right now where they're paying they have to separate tap platforms to engineering teams. Actually I think they have three if you're including the SPCA PLOUGHS And they have like these different marketing teams and ad sales team so there has to be they have to kind of decide. They're GONNA do they are they. How are they going to consolidate these things with also making Hulu part of battle? Yeah and there's also kind of interesting things for them to work at Internally Turnley with regard to Hulu like how did they manage all the various creative executives that they have involved with it you know. FX We hear is now going to be a huge part of Hulu and and John Landgraf the head of FX can have a major role in it who has his own originals people. Dana Walden at Disney's overseeing all of it so it's a lot of stuff to manage but in the end I mean and tell how many of you agree with me here. Like who is a really important property that they have here already. Has Almost thirty million subscribers like this is going to be a whole other task in adventure adventure for them to try to to try to make right. Yeah no absolutely. I mean the content side. It'll be interesting to see how that evolves you're right. There are a lot of cooks and kitchen so I don't know how that will end up. I feel like it's not gonNA end up the way we see it right now I do wonder what land graphs role will be longer longer term if it will be something bigger As would dinner Walden's I wanted to her The other thing to remember is like who is also going international as we reported you know like they are. I mean that's been reported but who is going to be going into Latin America. They're going to need to figure out the content strategy for all these other chase to which we know isn't easy to do networks and a lot of challenges Dang totally and and that's probably delaying a lot of the international plans to begin with so many rights to be to be kind of dealt with before you can launch a fully-fledged and competitive product all these different countries. Anyway Jessica. It's it's a lot of interesting stuff going on. It's always fun under report on it and and talk about it with you so I'm sure many more times in this podcast. We will be a giving dispatches from the field of the streaming wars and all right. Thanks thanks for joining.

"Food right next to you Wayne. Alex reported a A pretty big story published on Monday. That looked at Apple's augmented reality project. Kind of unusual usual meeting that happened Recently and a new timeline that lays out kind of what they're thinking about. Its release date. So why don't we start off with the meeting though what. What was his meeting all about? And what was discussed in it. It was a meeting of a different groups within apple that are working on augmented reality. The augmented committed reality. Group at Apple is headed up by guiding Mike Rockwell whose vice president of the company a former dolby executive and He assembled his group and other teams seems to talk about their product. Roadmap it was in the Steve Jobs Theater at apple which is a thousand seat capacity theater and apparently was full. We are told hold on and this is where they announced new iphones and things like that. I mean this is a a large venue Not Usually reserved for company meetings. Right now they do. Company meetings is there for sure by not necessarily with this kind of Level of content. We don't know all the meetings they do. But it's on the it's on the apple campus What was unusual about this was that they actually laid out their product? Roadmap for this very secretive Set of hardware products that they're working on on an augmented reality. Yeah and in this meeting. They basically said that they would expect. Their current plan was to release the apple kind of the first iteration of the ignited reality device in twenty twenty two which is later than we initially thought right. That's right right yes there were. There were estimates that they could come out with an augmented reality devices early as next year which frankly never seemed very realistic. I should say that these are two quite different products. The initial headset that We're saying they told people would come out in twenty twenty two is kind of an augmented reality. Virtual reality hybrid it. It would be kind of a form factor similar to the OCULUS quest. Something that you could use the are with and also an augmented reality And then the later product that were saying they told people will come out in twenty twenty three are lightweight glasses says that are really focused entirely on a are. Yeah so before. We get to the specifics about these these devices and what we think they could mean This meeting itself is is a bit kind of unusual right. I mean you don't frequently have meetings. Discussing secretive product happening large spaces. I mean is there. What do you think was the thinking behind that? Well you know it's mostly speculation on my part but There was There were media analyst reports reports out there as I said before a suggesting that next year is when their first AR products would come out. We know that that was not the case. Is that That these products are scheduled for a couple and three years Out from from next year. So my speculation is that Apple Apple. You know Told such unusually large group of people about this partly to allay Or rather answer questions that people internally might have had about this About this project there are fairly solid company. They don't usually lay out timelines To such such a large group At the company primarily for secrecy reasons. They don't want it to leak so the natural conclusion I think to come from them telling such a large. The Group of people is. They didn't really you know they wouldn't have minded that it. It got it. Got Out because you know there was this sort of belief in the marketplace That they were gonNA come out sooner now. The other thing is Everybody's expect is wondering what apple is GonNa do in the Er category. There are lots of other companies that are working on a are related projects snap magically a smaller company and facebook is probably the biggest one so apple coming out and in kind of a telling Not Minding that this would this would leak out through. Such a large meeting could have the effect of basically basically making people wait for their product. On right it's like a statement without making a statement. It would be strange for them to go out there and publicly discuss a time when of an unreleased product especially if it were to eh delayed again or be delayed at all and so this kind of serves their purpose potentially and it. We're speculating here. But it could serve their purpose without kind of being forthright about it possibly. Yes yeah okay. So let's get to the devices to so there have been augmented reality like things out there magically has its developer's kit and you know that's is a whole other can of worms what's going on with them and then snap has has been working on some stuff in there have been kind of start ups here and there that have taken stabs at augmented reality. No one's really cracked acted of course Microsoft in the Hollow Lens. That's another item. So I mean what is the hope that apple can achieve with both this twenty twenty two device and then the kind later more ambitious one well in the case of the twenty twenty two device. It's it's a little puzzling because I think it's fair to say. Virtual virtual reality products have not managed breakout beyond a niche market. The oculus quest the latest VR headset from oculus is is doing okay but I think with fairly limited expectations It facebook what it could achieve in terms of sales. So it's a little less clear to me with that product talked Wha what the end goal is the idea of of combining features with virtual reality and to be clear by that we we mean they'll be cameras on the front of his headset will allow you to basically see through into the physical environment around you and then you know kind of insert digital imagery over that but if it is anything like a hollow lens or a or innocuous quest it's not something that you will probably wear whereas in public It's really hard to imagine that that would be the case because it's kind of bulkier product. Yes the glasses though are much more interesting the idea Behind a wearable like that is that this is something that could be useful to you throughout the day And and you know it's still to be answered exactly how it could be useful but people have talked about giving you. Three D. mapping instructions so instead of having to look down at your phone phone when you're biking or walking or whatever The apple glasses of the future would just sort of insert arrows return Might give you some some kind of a facial or objects recognition built into the glasses which would be connected to the phone in the cloud. So that's the kind of stuff that it could do and the bigger picture here. Is that phone. Sales as most people know are slowing. IT'S A. It's it's Apple's biggest market. The IPHONE Its biggest business. And they're interested in venting whatever comes next and so's Facebook facebook incidentally and I'm sure some of the other tech companies so they really need to invest in this category and long term Maybe ten years maybe longer. It's possible that glasses or something like it could replace the phone right right and other companies are attempting to same thing too and I spent some time reporting on augmented reality relates to snap and and you guys have some details in there about kind of where snap is in their progress Do you think it's really realistic. Though so in the time you spent reporting this story out that you know we are on the precipice of true augmented reality breakthrough or is apple. You know just kind of trying to plant some sort. The flag early on in hopes that maybe a decade from now. This can be something I I will say on the record. I'm very skeptical. That we're at least ten years away from hermit. But I'd be interested to hear what your could you gathered. Well I think I think it's fair to say that skepticism is is merited here Not just because existing. VR Air products have not sold well. But there's just so much that needs to happen in terms of technology -nology and content before optics. It's a whole different world. Yeah exactly I mean. The engineering challenges are huge. You have to have a battery that lasts you now if not all day close to you need to. You can't have computers on these devices. That are heating up and making you uncomfortable and then you have this issue of like. Do people really want face computers today. Google glass was kind of its own thing. It was a really crude version of augmented edited. Reality some people would say not at all but you know it kind of gives you limited functions and then you had to put this thing on your face and it it really. I think is a fashion nor design. Statement it really Failed so apple which obviously has very high standards for design. Yeah is very interesting to me that they are investing heavily in what it seems like a very risky category. That could be many many the years away so I I don't I don't really know I mean like a are so far has been pitched mainly at the corporate market That's what Microsoft's doom with Holland's Poland's costs. I think thirty five hundred dollars. You can use it for engineering and CAD and met a medical applications and so on but apple will not do see that they do not create products that are purely for vertical markets like You know like the enterprise market so whatever they're gonNA do is going to be held to the far higher standards in terms of consumer ease of use and And Comfort and so on so And I just don't see see how the problems get fixed by twenty twenty two but what we're told. Is that this idea that it could one day replace. The phone is much further out like like that it could take a decade so possible possibly in that timeframe These these issues could get worked out. Yeah certainly that's what they're hoping all right neck. Excellent Excellent Story. Thanks so much for joining.

"Have you Friday. Everybody it's the information's for one. One your weekly look from the reporting team at all the things that happened over the past couple of days in media and tack and and And the other one's my name. Is Tom Dotan. I'm reported reported here at the information. Great episode for You guys today. It say Called a two and a half parter. First off is a fairly quick conversation. I have with a special special cast. Who's going to be at an event that we have in L. A.? Next Tuesday that I'm GonNa be plugging shortly and then I have the conversations with Nick Wingfield. Who Co oh authored? A story about apple admitted reality in a very interesting meeting that they had Last month that gives a sense of where they are in there a our dreams. And and then I'm talking to Jessica Gould my media counterpart Out New York about the week in streaming and media and the big moment that happened on Tuesday when Disney finally launched the Disney plus Kind of Disney goes from here. Some of the technical issues that had custody slight shadow on what otherwise was a pretty sterling day for the company. And the what this says about the state of Disney next Tuesday in Los Angeles the information is hosting a special event with Air Table on the future of digital storytelling with executives from in Silicon Valley. And Hollywood we're convening fifty executives involved in film television digital and technology to talk about what is working in the business and also changes from shifts in the business model to how companies handle creating and customizing content for so many different platforms one of our esteemed speakers nick bell who ran partnerships and content at snap APP as VP for a number of years and switching over to the investing slash building side as the CO founder of attention capital. We thought we'd have on today to do. Some rapid could fire questions about what is ahead media and What's going on in the coming year? Plus all right nick. How's it going? I'm well Tom. How're you excellent? Thank you you That does not count as one of your rapid fire. Questions just wanted to check in all right you ready. I'm ready to go all right. What would you say is the most over hyped trend in media right now? I think one of the most over hyped trends in meteorite now is s fault. It's the thing that's taking up my newsfeed every time I look at it. It's the thing thing that everyone's discussing. It's the thing that everyone's asking and talking about when you got a dinner party so yeah I would have to say the most oh behind thing right now is s fought a right S. fought over hyped. What is is the most under hype trend in meteorite? Now so the most over hyped thing is asphalt the most underdog thing I think is about I think you know if you look at. What's the amount of great content that is available You know as both library content and content that is being produced on a daily basis. I think you know. A vote provides a huge opportunity. And I think you know consumer's GonNa make the shift away from that cable bundle. which was once I almost? Re- regarded audited utility towards free content. which is available You know on Mass on is also available to serve an SUV niches. So you know. If I'm interested in fly fishing I can go online now and I can find a huge wealth of free content But I don't have to pay for that. Is available on demand on soothes whatever. I'm specifically interested in all right Avon under hype next have we reached peak subscription. So I don't think we've reach peak subscription yet Alot I think what we're getting close. I think you know right now. I look at what I'm subscribed to and Most of those things a actually just competing for one thing and that is my attention that competing for my time. I'm you know that is the most scarce resource that we have so. I think you know what we're going to start doing over. The next few years is is really trying to figure out where we spend our time I think products and services are going became available. which help us manage all subscriptions and I think we're going to be far more Wary about signing up for new products and I think we're going to be far more all selected about what we continue to pay. So you know. I don't think we're quite there yet. I think it's getting close. I write a song keeps scripture into the information all all right qube bullish or bearish. You know I'm a fence sitter on this one I think I think when Jeffrey conceived concede this business it was It was very different landscape. You know I'm really bullish. On the fact that mobile is in you ought form you know. We spent spent several years at snapchat. Really trying to work out what content on mobile should look like. I think we lead the way and I snapped. It's still leading the way In that arena You know that that shows that show's format is is exceptional and the content continues to get better and better Sean Hills and the team across snape doing a great job job of really building out chicken telling slave at so I do believe that mobile is in you all and I do believe that you know the creative process behind mobile is different having said got you know I think if you look at the position qube coming from it's pretty challenging. Very few subscription products launched in the market In certainly in the audiovisual kind of marketplace without a real library of content. You know if you think about spotify or any of them use IT products. There is a huge huge library of content that they could tap into if you think about net flake so you think about you know any of the other subscription at services in in in the in the video will then again they were able to lean on pre existing libraries at. Jeffrey is too and Caribbean. Stay true to that would then they. You'RE GONNA create this mobile content from the ground up which means that they have to create hits from day one and I think you know the the production time will lead time on creating content. It's is not overnights when it comes to great quality content like the content Caribbean told them out producing and Baffour they launch on day. One they got a bunch of data back doc and then they have to stop making programming decisions and decisions about you know what they green light going forwards and and what works. What doesn't Dr Very quickly? Unfortunately there is a lead time to create that content. So you know if they get it right out of the gate then. It's going to be a huge success if it's not quite right and consumers don't respond respond to it then it's GonNa take them a little while to To get there to get sort of acting together so I I'm really I'm really sort of bullish on the a team jeffries build across our. I know a lot of the folk across a number of ex snap people number of people. I respect highly. But I don't think it's a I don't think it's Yeah I don't get a slam John Dunk yet right right tough to get his out of the gate. All right last one apple Amazon. Are they still making TV. Shows three years from now. You know I think if my balance sheet look apple or Amazon I would continue to produce content. I think content becomes a differentiator I think the reason I it makes sense for an Amazon an or an apple a Roku is because they are so far up the stock they are they are the hardware and the you know the interface that consumes dealing with so I think it makes a ton Tana sense it gives them a point of differentiation on you know why not they can afford to do it. I think it's a it's a small cost if it if it helps shed that brand in a positive lights and helps you win or attained a few a few extra customers. It's very worthwhile all right there.

"And I have to know who am I and how do I want to use it? So that I can do the best drama doing that. I love the first part is really knowing yourself and staying grounded, and I know there are. Are some other strategies that you recommend and I wanna talk about those. But you mentioned in the beginning, we created technology for productivity. That's true. And that we more productive re are the idea is that the more time we have to spend doing the things that we love with our loved ones. But I wonder if that's really happening or at the more productive. We are do we get into this cycle of doing more doing more doing more number one. And number two when did it shift from technology for productivity to technology for entertainment? And is that really the piece of it that snags are distraction by can give you a perfect example of how we think technology is going to benefit us. And then it turns out to be technology creates more need for technology. So I read a study recently that the average employee actually for every Email that they send it get four Inose in return, which means that if you're the individual who thinks I'm just gonna send this. One easy on a Sunday night. So that I can start my Monday morning fresh what she just done is quadruple the number of messages that are going to greet you a Monday morning writing a Walking Dead coming back to chase. After you. We can't get ahead of our Email because it's a treadmill that never stops in that doesn't mean we shouldn't use Email. It just means that our expectations about what's going to happen are a little bit off. We find the same thing with positive psychology. Which just how I got my roots in this field when we think about what's to make us happy. We look ahead and say, oh, if I could just finish this project, then I'll be happy. If I can go in vacation, then I'll be happy. If I could just get my degree and get a job, then I'll be happy, and what we learn from positive psychologists that that formula is scientifically broken. It turns out the individuals view pursue happiness. First and foremost are significantly more likely. To be successful later on the former's actually backwards. It's happiness leads to success not successfully happiness, and I bring that up because I think we do the same thing with technology. We think if I can just finish get my inbox two zero or if I can just respond to all my voice mails, then not be happy. And we now know that that hormone doesn't work you have to figure out. How can I make choices for my happiness right now on the present? So that I can do all these other tasks that will still be there when I get done at the end of the day. But how did technology becomes such a big player in our happiness? Is it that formula that technology causes us to be more distracted and distraction causes us to be less happy? Or like, how does this all that together in the way that you think about it? I guess the hands on how you define technology right technology, just being a tool. Right. And if you think about it being it's full the concept of using a tool for great. Her happiness goes way back to the cave. Mandates rate where you've got a caveman who suddenly discovers the round wheel any thinks. Oh, my goodness now, I can roll things around and not have to carry heavy stones everywhere. Right. As we move forward in society. We see evidence of other types of technology that we did the same thing lists whether it's the newspaper or the radio or television than intendo. And now, we have the internet in internet of stinks and VR and AR in a unit, and as we're looking at these types of technology are the tool or they supposed to be the savior that's going to make everything better..

"Blazer with Josh sees get to the phones. Here Craig has been waiting Craig thanks for calling six ten WTVN Absolutely thanks for being on I wanted to point. Out that I favour armed resource officers in school but, the difference between a semiautomatic AR fifteen and a semi automatic pistol might be aiming capability but they all shoot at the same, as fast as you pull the trigger is held, fast, gun, shoot so the difference might be a larger magazine capacity better but they should have the. Same philosophy of pull the. Trigger as fast as, you can Yeah but the Craig are you still there Still here okay what I was gonna say is the a are fifteen the that is, you said they shoot at the same velocity but if, you're shooting a nine millimeter, versus, you know. The, AR fifteen the, five five six load I mean you. Got. Different stopping power going on there I I didn't I. Didn't mean velocity of the bullet as much as I went, the frequency of the bullet leaving the muzzle okay okay, I see what, I see, what, you're saying Does they're both semi automatic weapons so. Again, they might be have might have greater quote stopping power with a nine millimeter or, forty, five. Compared to, an era. Fifteen that's a valid point but an air fifteen. Doesn't shoot, any faster or slower than any other semi. Automatic pistol yeah. I actually I own both so I know exactly what you're talking about for sure man absolately, but yeah I. Agree. They. Need to be armed to protect our children Yeah couldn't it couldn't agree more Craig thank you and you know my. AR, for the for instance. Has a thirty, round clip. With. It and my my my nine millimeter has a fifteen round clip so it's half the amount of. Rounds and in the half, the amount, of those rounds is. Much less stopping power as well so if one round lands from the AR fifteen. It's going to be more devastating than say a, handgun or whatever that was really kind of my point with what I was talking about. Earlier Mike, thank you for waiting you're on six ten, WTVN yeah so I'm actually probably going to be one of the listeners that. Thinks this is a, bad idea armed resource officers in general I believe present a bad idea and the reason. Is, is because that gives the attacker I target to seek out and then if we, have, norther. Aren't personnel, school then. We basically you've created a situation where once this You know, opportunity to take out that resource officer presents itself and, it's like, shooting, fish barrel so I think the. Better option. Or the best option actually is to, allow persons, that are licensed to carry concealed handguns. To do so, even on public property and no question you. Know don't ask don't tell policy that way there's no record, of which classroom is going to present a lethal threat to an. Attacker and it's not like shooting fish in a, barrel it makes victim selection process extremely difficult for the attacker at. That point well the the the whole kind of in your theory they're in. My, estimation Mike is that. The the attacker, coming in. Would. Have to know who has the a are fifteen exactly where they're at in the school so they. Would have to know all, of that, prior to entering the. School and then I think then you're theory would is valid at that point but. Until then somebody coming in and you you're saying, if it was saying another student or whatever and then I knew, exactly who, has access to this or. Or whatever that was kind of what you're saying right that's correct yeah and it's not out of the relative thing that even student attackers. Can get this information we saw that in Columbine I mean it's not. It's, you know, it's not be secret where the resource, officers offices we're the, resource, officer is a certain times of the day and the officer is identified not only by the possession of now there's they are fifteen. But a uniform I it just it it presents an opportunity for someone to. Come in take out the only resistance in the school and then everything. Else was like shooting fish in a barrel, okay mic thank you and that's that's a good point, valid point Britt standby and room for you..

"And I'm sure there's a lot of technology in terms of building building that anyway. But in terms of expecting that they were gonna come out well, maybe. You come out with something at all now, but coming out with something that's, you know, that's blows your mind. I, I wouldn't have expected that just because that doesn't seem realistic. I mean, I feel like it's more of my view on VR AR in that right now it could have and does have some great use cases for certain. You know, I could see this great for training for education, but in terms of like the everyday consumer of you're thinking of it from that lens, then it's just, I don't think it's there yet. I mean, who's going to that price point is just not accessible for the best majority of people. And what do you do? I mean to be clear, this is the developer edition. They're basically this is not like. Whatever you wanna call it just like Google glass basically that other and that one thing that definitely really, really well where like getting it enhanced developers, they can play around with it, create use cases for it, things like that. But I mean, you look at air sort of like pretty much all day, right. So like what? What are you. Hopefully not all day, but hopefully you see some sort of, right. I mean, what is like? What are some of the emerging cases that that are coming up that mean? Is this a product we even need? Because I feel like we will say, so we don't. I don't actually look at them all a lot. I mean, we've done some investments in in the space and it's something we would keep an eye on as we would with probably a lot of different sectors because we invest, we invest pretty broadly, although we do like to focus on a few areas, but for VR AR I would I would. I would say we're probably maybe a little bit more hesitant on it only because I really kind of depends on on the company like we've done a few investments in the space and you know, because we invest so early stage, we're investing really, really early. So I mean, we we have, we have invested in Penrose which is more on the, I guess, content side, I'm in terms of the our ER. So there's a clear use case there, but so that's probably what I would look at in terms of if it is a are VR. There's gotta be some something that they're. Targeting like very specialized. I mean, when we we kinda joke about the Google glass scenario, people obviously still use it. I mean, I when I go to my doctor, it's it's a lot of them use it for that for that purpose. So there's a clear maybe in that case, it's found a home for the medical, the medical world sidebar. This. A lot of these expensive headsets that are super cool technology, but aren't great for consumers may have an industrial application or medical application, but magically one creator addition is not magically one industrial edition, right? This is not aimed at that market, so. So to your actual point, I wonder if they're shooting for market, it doesn't quite exist yet. I'm still bullish on VR AR in the long run, I presume I, oh by this and use it very often. I do not think I have any reason to today, and I end the target market and I have a very fast gaming PC at home. I play gains. I have disposable income to buy heads that if I wanted to do like, I'm kind of target market and I gotta go. Yeah. Well, I mean, so there's, I think there's two things happening here. One is that magically was so loud about their product being game changing for so long. It was like the, they were all my God, like the promo videos and all of the like they were. They were basically saying, we are going to fundamentally change the way people use augmented reality. And when I look at what's coming out here and it's like, okay, it's cool set of. AR glasses that people might use walking around wherever. When I look at this, I think back in look at what happened with Google glass and what have with polka mongo..

"So that's why that's what the apps paying is really where it should start. What's his finding a good use case for AR. Oh, it told him accents amick sense now, and I think that's where like the the consumer introduction will will sort of seep in and I feel like the. Thing that is hurting. The perception of the successive AR is the same thing that might make it a success, which is I don't see it around me right with virtual reality. Oh, I know when you're using it right because you got that big headset on your face. I know VR, but that's also a barrier, which is like, all right, I have to go get that thing and put it on and cover my face, and I can't see anything else, and I can't do anything else, whereas a are. I bet a lot of you listening have used it. You're just not thinking about it as a are. I mean, I was thinking about this earlier today. I went to do some measurements in the backyard. We were putting up a fence for the dogs, and instead of taking the actual measuring tape, I had my phone. I was like, oh, I'll just use this. I use the measuring up, right because it was. I didn't think about it as I'm going to use AR. It's like, oh, I've got a measuring app. I'll just use this, but I was mixing augmented reality right then.
